As always, Calhoun County has stepped up with a #ServantsHeart following the storms Monday night. If you want to know how you can help please watch this video. Also - here is a message from the City of Jacksonville... "The City of Jacksonville would like to thank all first responders, utility workers and volunteers for the mass response to the horrific tornado that ripped through our 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 our community at this time. We are in the process of planning a community-wide cleanup this weekend. In the meantime feel free to complete the preregistration process before you come out this weekend by visiting the Jacksonville Community Center from 7 a.m. to 7 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 Once again, we thank you all for your support during this difficult time for our city."

‪All Alexandria Schools may be without water tomorrow. The water dept. is working on the issue and the school will notify you by 6:00 a.m tomorrow if school is canceled. ‬

Individuals that want to volunteer can check in at the Jacksonville Community Center to serve. #servantsheart

As the sun comes up on the damage from last night's tornadoes it will be tempting for some to drive up and take a look. Please don't. There are many people working hard to assess the damage and deal with situations that are still dangerous. They need to be able to move around without the unnecessary traffic. Please avoid the damaged areas. Thank you.
