Jacksonville division of ALEA offers statement on Monday’s severe weather outbreak

SHARE NOW

JACKSONVILLE, Ala. – After Monday night’s devastating severe weather outbreak, Tuesday’s daylight allowed responders to fully comprehend the magnitude of the damage.

The Jacksonville division of ALEA issued a statement Tuesday evening:

The City of Jacksonville and the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency would like to thank all first responders, utility workers and volunteers for the mass response to the horrific tornado that ripped through the Jacksonville community, on Monday evening. At daybreak we were able to fully realize the sheer devastation that occurred to our neighbors and friends. As we move forward with cleanup and restoration efforts we ask for community support in helping make the process as efficient as possible. We have been in communication with Alabama Power Company and understand they are bringing additional resources to help restore electrical service to everyone quickly. In an effort to allow Alabama Power and other utility groups to complete their work safely and as quickly as possible we would ask for all volunteers to suspend their efforts until Friday morning. It is simply unsafe to continue efforts in the most severely impacted parts of the Jacksonville community at this time.

The City of Jacksonville are in the process of planning a community-wide cleanup this weekend. In the meantime, feel free to complete the preregistration process before coming out this weekend by visiting the Jacksonville Community Center from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. or by downloading the volunteer forms on the Calhoun County EMA’s website. For more information on volunteer efforts call (256)435-8115 or visit www.calhounema.org.

Once again, we thank you all for your support during this difficult time.
