An RVer visits his Alabama hometown after it was devasted by a tornado

Sean Michael, a superb filmmaker who travels with his wife Kristy in an Airstream trailer, filed this video report of a visit to his hometown of Coleman, Alabama which was devastated by an April 27 tornado. This is the best look we have seen of the devastation from the series of tornadoes, and because it's from an RVers point a view it's message is even more meaningful.


  1. Let not your heart be troubled.
    Belive in God,He will console you and comfort you in all things.
    especiallly when you think your world has ended.The people in AL are strong and come to the rescue of each other. People of this great Nation is willing to help all of those whose lost everything.
    God Bless all of you in your time of need. I was raised in Mobile,AL.
    AL is a great State. I am proud to be a part of that State.

  2. I live in the Birmingham area and have seen the devestation thru out the entire upper part of the state. Small towns has simply disappeared - there may be a wall left standing from a store, but
    everything else is gone. People are donating time and materials, but clean-up is going to be an ongoing process for a long, long time. If you want to help, donate to the Red Cross or find out if your church is assisting and donate to that. As with Katrina, people here have lost everything they had. We help others in the world after a disaster. let's help those in Alabama.
    By the way, the community in the video is Cullman, not Coleman.
