Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congresswoman Terri A. Sewell (D-AL) released the following statement about the tornadoes and heavy storms that devastated the state of Alabama on Monday January 23rd:

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families that lost loved ones today, and with all of the communities that suffered devastation as a result of this morning’s storms and tornadoes.  For the third time in nine months, communities in Alabama have suffered damage as a result of tornadoes. Once again, the resolve and will of the people of Alabama is being challenged by a natural disaster.  I am confident that the resilient spirit of Alabamians will see us through these difficult times and our communities will rebuild and recover stronger and better than before.

As we assess the magnitude of the damage in the days ahead, my office will continue to work with federal, state and local officials to ensure we are doing all we can to assist the victims as we begin the process of rebuilding.”
