Above, you can see the damage in Tuscaloosa, Ala., after the deadly string of tornadoes earlier this week. The photo was forwarded to us by former Banner-News reporter Lauren Martin, who went to college at Southern Arkansas University with the photographer, Michaela Krcova.
Krcova graduated from SAU and went on to Tuscaloosa for graduate school. We plan to try to contact her later today if possible – according Lauren, Krcova has to be in an area where there’s cell service. Krcova also sent word to us that she can be reached by Internet, but has to be near the campus because their service is gas-powered right now.
We’ll have more as it becomes available – in the meantime, here’s another photo of the devastation in that area:
