Statement by the President on the Severe Storms and Tornadoes in Alabama

Michelle and I extend our deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their lives 
because of the tornadoes that have swept through Alabama and the southeastern United States. 
Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by this devastation, and we commend the 
heroic efforts of those who have been working tirelessly to respond to this disaster. 
I just spoke to Governor Bentley and told him that I have ordered the Federal Government 
to move quickly in our response and informed him that I approved his request for emergency
 Federal assistance, including search and rescue assets. While we may not know the extent 
of the damage for days, we will continue to monitor these severe storms across the country 
and stand ready to continue to help the people of Alabama and all citizens affected by these storms.
