Alabama's Governor Signs Agreement With FEMA for Emergency Funds

Fake Melania

She was in the nearby town of Opelika with her husband and 14-year-old daughter when the tornadoes hit.

The search for victims in and around the devastated rural community of Beauregard continued on Tuesday, with crews using heavy equipment to lift large chunks of wreckage.

The massive destruction was described by Lee County sheriff Jay Jones as "a giant knife" scraping the ground.

The victims ranged in age from six to 89, Lee County Coroner Bill Harris told a news conference.

Choking back tears, Kidd said, "We could've lost all three of them and we know there are families that lost their entire family". Winds in the area reached 170 miles per hour. "After what I woke up and seen this morning, I'm in shock I'm still here", he said. "It just demolished the house and took them".

"He didn't make it out", she said.

"Very inquisitive, she loved learning and always contributed in a positive way", Cox said. "They're all spears. They're all killing machines". He was known as "Roaddog" for his love of Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

"It's a miracle we weren't inside here when it hit", Hunter Lashley said, "and that we found all the animals". My life is gone. "He was the reason I lived, the reason that I got up".

"It's sort of like making a cake - if the ingredients can all really come together we could certainly have multiple tornadoes across the broad region", said Andrew Pritchett, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Huntsville, Alabama. It crossed the Chattahoochee River into western Georgia and inflicted more damage along a path stretching roughly 70 miles (112 kilometers).

Trump and his wife Melania Trump took a helicopter tour of the area before going to the homes of some victims in the tiny and especially hard-hit community of Beauregard, near the border with Georgia. Most have been released from the hospital.

First lady Melania Trump and the couple's son, Barron, are on the trip with the president.

As a result, many fear, these clinics that serve approximately 4 million people a year may be forced to close their doors. Prior to the ruling, federal law barred Title X grant recipients from using funds to facilitate abortions.

"It's been a tragic situation, but a lot of good work is being done" in the aftermath, Trump said.

Trump declared a major disaster declaration for Lee County on Tuesday, opening up federal funds and FEMA assistance for those affected by the storm. A vehicle sat atop the remains of one house.

More than 10,000 people are without power, according to the local press.

"Yesterday I talked to some team members who had found bodies". "And he said he could feel his ears start popping. It was the most insane sound", Willis said. They invest in their homes, and they have a sense of legacy.

"He said there was nothing left", Ashley said.

The tornado that struck Beauregard was the deadliest to hit the US since May 2013, when 24 people were killed by a twister in Moore, Oklahoma.

The National Weather Service says a violent storm system Sunday spawned at least 11 twisters in Alabama and 14 more across Georgia. She was not home when the storm hit and believes her life was spared.

"I want the president here to see what happened to my mom's house", she said.

Then on Tuesday night, they got an unexpected surprise.

"It was God", she said.
