First Alabama Tornado Victims Move into FEMA Homes

The Times Daily reports from Franklin County, Alabama, that Savannah Swinney and her family are the first in Alabama to move into a FEMA factory-built home.  She and her daughter sought shelter in the closet of their apartment, which was heavily damaged by the tornado that carried winds up to 200 mph.  A new community to house tornado victims, Liberty Hill opened just north of Phil Campbell, with 11 factory-built homes.  Four other families were also moved in with help from the Russellville firefighters and policemen.  The families, all very thankful to have a roof over their heads, can stay in the homes for as long as 18 months.  Thirty additional homes are due to arrive soon, says Roy Gober, director of the Franklin Emergency Management Agency.
