Tornado Economic Windfall

Tuscaloosa, Alabama – Alabama Public Radio news director Pat Duggins reports on the economic "benefit" from the April tornadoes, and how some industries may be helped more than others. Alabama has an estimated four billion dollars worth of insured damage, and that could mean a lot of cash flowing into the State. Pat examines how natural disasters can help boost business in construction, but maybe not agriculture, including Alabama's poultry industry.
