President Donald Trump is directing FEMA to give Alabama "the A-plus treatment," following the devastating tornado in Lee County. The President tweeted: "FEMA has been told directly by me to give the A Plus treatment to the Great State of Alabama and the wonderful people who have been so devastated by the Tornadoes.
@GovernorKayIvey, one of the best in our Country, has been so informed. She is working closely with FEMA (and me!)." Ivey says the President told her, "of course you've got my support, to the state I love." The tornado killed at least 23 people Sunday, and others remain missing. The National Weather Service said damage in the Beauregard community is consistent with a powerful EF-4 tornado, containing winds of 170 mph.
