Christian Volunteers Help a Lee County Rancher Recover From a Devastating Tornado

One of the ranches hardest hit is along Lee road in Salem, Alabama right where volunteers from Opelika Baptist church showed up to lend their neighbor a hand.

Besides the human toll from the deadly tornado that rolled through the Lee County region March 3rd, we’re learning more about animals left dead or injured.

WLTZ’s Don Hammond talked to the Lee County Agricultural extension officer and the Humane Society who say they are still gathering data but the storm did kill and injure a small number of livestock and pets.

That number could go up especially if ranchers can’t get fences fixed before the livestock learn they can get out on the road.

While working as a volunteer I was not only troubled by all the damage done to outbuildings, barns and fences I was also did not see one dog.

Animal experts I talked to say they’re also aware of dead, injured and lost dogs from the recent tornado and suggest you keep checking shelters if your pet is missing.
