It's Deja Vu All Over Again

That famous line from baseball great Yogi Berra may make you chuckle, but what's happening in Alabama right now is no laughing matter.

For the second time in less than a year, the Red Cross is setting up relief operations after multiple tornadoes touched down across several states overnight.  Much of the damage is being reported in areas of Alabama that were devastated by deadly tornadoes just last spring.

As always, Western New Yorkers stepped up to help during the massive spring storms in 2011, but now those in one of the hardest hit areas are dealing with the devastation again.  In fact, because of this weekend's storms, officials had to reschedule a Monday meeting to receive a report on the response to the storms last spring.

It has to be hard for residents who were just starting to piece things together to have them ripped apart by yet another tornado.  When the Red Cross says we are helping "turn heartbreak into hope," this is what we're talking about.  A warm meal or a place to spend the night may be the most important thing to some Alabama residents right now, and you can help provide that with a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief.  We appreciate your support, but not as much as your neighbors in need will!
