    looking for news about the UAH campus in Huntsville. If anyone knows the whereabouts of Brett McCormick please let me know. We are in England and cannot make any contact due to the power being down

    Hey Angie! You must be very worried about your son. I was actually studying in UAH as an international student a couple of years ago. I’m not sure if I met Brett, he must be new there? Hope Brett is ok….I’m pretty sure he’s ok because UAH has pretty good warning systems and they make sure everyone is safe inside the buildings when a warning is issued.

    So don’t worry too much!

    The news lately is just devastating anymore but,all these people who lost so much and so many lost so much is just horrible.I can’t imagine having to plan funerals or attend funerals either and even worst is to have to look for family and friends .I’m so thankful my family there is safe.Like so many you can’t let one day go by angry or let the stress of life take ahold of us.The other day I was so depressed because my house is in forclosure,no car, no ac, trying to raise my grandson and get through school.Then when something like this happens makes you think.Hey,what I’m dealing with just isn’t so bad.OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS TO ALL WHO HAS BEEN EFFECTED BY THIS DEVASTATING STORM!!!!

    My neice and her 2 sons live in the area and were affected by these tornado’s. They are safe and unhurt, Thank God! I just wanted to get word out that yesterday, my neice (steph) went to the only store she could get to, and still being a bit shook up from all of this, she lost her wallet, she did go back but was unable to find it, she reported it missing, and I’m praying, that with all this destruction that their are still honest people in the world, and will turn it in, with everything including her money, as she has 2 babies to feed. So if you found a wallet and a store yesterday, PLEASE turn it in!! GOD BLESS!
