Volunteers, Relief Groups Help Alabama Storm Victims

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Relief agencies and volunteers are helping out victims of the tornadoes that hit Alabama on Christmas Day.
The American Red Cross says volunteers have distributed bottled water, shovels, rakes and cleanup kits to people in Mobile and Prichard, where dozens of homes were damaged. They've also provided tarps to people whose roofs were damaged.
The Salvation Army says it has fed more than 1,000 people in Mobile, and it's also providing food in Troy. A tornado caused widespread damage in the southeast Alabama county.
The Alabama Emergency Management Agency says Mobile, Pike and Marengo counties were hardest hit by severe storms that pummeled Alabama on Tuesday.
No serious injuries were reported. State emergency management director Art Faulkner says people are taking weather warnings seriously since the April 2011 tornadoes.
