Survivors Pick Through Storm Devastation

Friday, April 29, 2011

CONCORD, Ala. (AP) - As crews combed the remains of houses and neighborhoods pulverized by the nation's deadliest tornado outbreak in nearly four decades, survivors were left trying to figure out how to put their lives back together.

At least 297 were killed across six states in Wednesday's outbreak.

President Barack Obama planned a trip to Tuscaloosa on Friday to view storm damage and meet Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley and shattered families. Late Thursday, Obama signed a disaster declaration for the state to provide federal aid to those who seek it.
