"I was sitting there praying, asking the Lord to protect everybody around us"

In a news report, officials say that more than a dozen tornadoes reportedly struck parts of Alabama and Georgia. The tornadoes have been causing a lot of damage, such as knocking homes off their foundations, leveling trees, destroying cars and leaving thousands without power.

"I was sitting there praying, asking the Lord to protect everybody around us," Lee County, AL resident Sharon Poole said.

"The devastation is incredible," Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said.
Scott Fillmer, also from Lee County, described the horrifying scene. "I looked out the window and it was nothing but black, but you could hear that freight train noise," he said.

"I'm still thanking God I'm among the living"

"It went from dark to daylight; I just watched it just suck the clouds in and everything," Smith's Station, AL resident Donald Estes said.

"I'm still thanking God I'm among the living," said John Jones, who has lived in Beauregard, AL for most of his life.
Residents are in shock but trying to move forward and help those in need.

"I've lived here my whole life," said Ryan Posey of Smith's Station. "Me personally, getting out and helping – this is the worst."

Several search and rescue workers have been looking for survivors, and the entire state of Alabama is under a state of emergency.
