Recovery efforts continue in tornado ravaged South
For the first time since a string of deadly tornadoes ripped through Alabama last week more storms are moving through some of the hardest hit areas, adding to the already difficult and painful recovery there.
Dark clouds and heavy rains bring back painful memories of what happened.
"I'm getting a lot of water damage right now," notes storm survivor Lynn McAdams. "That wouldn't have happened if it were not for the rain. We've just really been unable to get things out."
McAdams' foot was injured in the storm.
Doctors have told her to stay off of it, but she can't.
There's too much work to do.
"It's hard when you're going through your whole life, you know, shattered and in dirt," she says.
Thousands of volunteers have poured into the area, delivering water, food and supplies so desperately needed by so many here.
Meanwhile, more than 300 people are still missing.
"You don't take any chances you keep looking. Keep hope alive, keep our prayers and we keep looking," says Tuscaloosa County Sheriff Ted Sexton.
One of the major issues is how to handle all of the debris.
Tuscaloosa is working out a deal with the Army Corps of Engineers to oversee and pay for the clean-up effort, which could start by the end of the week.
