Do any of you live where the tornados struck or do you have any family or friends who live there?  How did you or they make out?  I have two cousins and their families who live in Holly Srin

I have a girl friend that lives very close to St Louis that I have not heard from or been able to get a hold of.  I keep praying for her and her family.

Alabama was the worst-hit state in last week's storms, with 250 people killed. Elsewhere, 101 people died in Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Georgia, Virginia and Louisiana.

About 1,700 people were injured in Alabama alone and others were missing after tornadoes crushed homes, flipped cars upside down and tore children from their parents' arms.

To help people get back on their feet, the Department of Agriculture will make homes in rural areas available for rent, said Vilsack.

The U.S. Small Business Administration announced it would make loans of up to $200,000 available to homeowners and up to $2 million for small businesses. It would also make $80 million available in block grants to states.

  • It looks like last week's tornado outbreak was the biggest on record for a single 24-hour period, federal experts said Monday.

    Preliminary estimates counted 312 tornadoes from 8 a.m. ET on April 27 to 8 a.m. on April 28, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said. That's far above the previous record of 148 twisters in 1974.

    Over a 48-hour window, the total appears to be 362, NOAA stated.

    An earlier statement had put the estimate at 226 tornadoes during the 24-hour window, and 312 over 48 hours.

    April also set a record for most tornadoes in a single month — more than 600, NOAA said, compared with the previous record of 542 in May 2003.
