An EF2 tornado severely pounded East Brewton recently during Tropical Storm Claudette. Storm-damaged areas included W.S. Neal High School and the Escambia County Fire Rescue Station. Mobile homes and houses were demolished, trees toppled and debris covered streets. More than 1,000 customers were temporarily left without power.
Immediately following the tornado, the Alabama Power Service Organization (APSO) began looking for ways to help people affected by the storm.
“Although this was a terrible and tragic experience for those in this area, it provided an opportunity for APSO’s Mobile Division and Mobile-area employees to do what we do best: embrace the opportunity and bless those who have suffered so much loss,” said Sharon Murrill, Mobile Division External Affairs community relations manager and APSO president.
