Madison County Tornadoes – 20110502

Not a typical Monday, May 2nd was day 5 of the recovery effort in Madison County, Alabama. Preliminary reports from the NWS suggest that all four of the tornadoes that ripped across the county last Wednesday were EF-4 tornadoes.

ARRL Director for the Southeastern Division,
Greg Sarratt – W4OZK stops by the ARES Information/Communications hub at the Sparkman School, to get a briefing by Alan Sieg – WB5RMG. Primarily ARES communications is supporting the field clinic operated by the North Alabama Medical Reserve Corps, but the bigger picture includes providing assistance with information distribution and logistics coordination all about the Sparkman Support Post operations. There is a steady flow of people, vehicles and supplies; including neighborhood residents, volunteers, law enforcement, and the National Guard.
