Kilpatrick Community Recovering, American Red Cross Asking for Help

KILPATRICK, Ala. (WHNT)– The day after a storm hit the Kilpatrick community of DeKalb County, residents were picking up the debris and damage left behind.

“Oh we got a lot of damage,” said Eric Johnson. “It blew a tree down on my truck and busted the window out.  A pine cone came through the bedroom window.”

Johnson’s mobile home was one of many in the area to take a hit on Monday from what the National Weather Service says was an EF-2 tornado.

The American Red Cross is setup in the area trying to lend assistance.

“We have teams that are going out in the community doing damage assessments,” said Judy Rhea with the Red Cross.  “And we are also doing mobile feeding with snacks, water, delivering tarps, cleanup supplies.”

Luckily there were no serious injuries, but there are a lot of needs in the community.

Rhea says anyone wishing to help can send monetary donations to the DeKalb County Red Cross.  She says they can be mailed to the address below.
