Ala Governor Says State Compiling Storm Losses
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley says officials aren't sure whether the state will qualify for federal aid to help with recovery from the Christmas Day tornado outbreak.
Bentley's comments came Thursday in Prichard, where he is touring damage left by the storm. A twister left millions in damage at a trucking company the governor visited.
Bentley says the state is still compiling damage assessments from the storms, which hit multiple counties across the state. He says officials are trying to determine what sort of aid the state and local governments could receive.
Private agencies already are stepping in to help, with volunteers and groups feeding more than 1,000 people in Mobile and Pike County, two of the hardest-hit areas.
