WHAT HAPPENED: A storm system produced more than 350 tornadoes in a four-day period. Hardest hit was Alabama, where two Churches of Christ lost their buildings. (See our coverage of the storms.)
WHAT HELPED: A church in Texas sent heavy duty tents, which helped workers organize supplies, said Chandra Clark, a member of the Central Church of Christ in Tuscaloosa. A loaned forklift also was useful.
