    Alabama Tornado Aftermath: A Message of Hope and Thanks


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JoshSpurgin sat on the steps of his home in Higdon, Alabama, a day after a tornado destroyed it. The footage also shows neighboring homes and areas that were flattened. Spurgin, 23, thanked his family, friends and even a couple of celebrities who offered him support on Twitter, specifically @BrianLynch and @MichaelIanBlack.
