Images of the Destruction from the Alabama Tornado

The above photos are from the devastation in in the southern US after a tornado ripped thru 5 States, killing a confirmed 290 people. The majority of the deaths were in Alabama.  Global Village Champions volunteers immediately assessed the dire situation and donated to the Birmingham Salvation Army a truck load of water (over 9,000 bottles) and food . The Foundation's Founder and Chairman Yank Barry flew into Alabama and spent the day on touring the devastation along with Cameron Jacques (a Villager) and John Tidwell of Birmingham Salvation Army.
