Walker County neighborhood recovers after the storm

Posted: Updated:

Many communities in our area are trying to get back to normal, after Monday's storms.

In the Dogwood Trace neighborhood in Jasper, some people were still without power Tuesday night.  Others wish they simply had a home to go to, with electricity or not.

In the midst of it all, neighbors are coming together to help one another.  Alabama's 13 Kalisha Whitman talked to two men who got a firsthand experience with helping.  They pulled their neighbor out of his mobile home after it was flipped over by the storm.

Terry Abrom, who lives in the community, said what people need more than anything is help.

"We need some kind of assistance.  I mean people out here are having to use grills to cook and everybody doesn't have food to cook," he said. "I mean some people's food spoiled because we have no power. You know, we need places to stay. I mean...it's just...I don't know. We need a lot out here."

Abrom said for some people, it could be a long road to recovery if assistance isn't available.
