In the wake of the devastating tornado that struck downtown Wetumpka Saturday afternoon, you should refrain from the area as the process to get the roadways clear, get the utilities back up and running, and removal of debris begins. Many crews are working to assist those that have been effected.

Those that are needing shelter should go to the First United Methodist Church or Wetumpka High School.

There will be opportunities for individuals and organizations to help in the coming days and weeks. Please monitor the Elmore County EMA and Elmore County Commission on social media for that information or listen to this radio station.

If you can help monetarily, the Wetumpka Tornado Relief Fund has been established to assist citizens impacted by the tornado. To make a donation, go to www.cacfinfo.org and click on GIVE TODAY and select “Wetumpka Tornado Relief or mail a check payable to CACF, 114 Church Street, Montgomery, AL 36104, and reference Wetumpka Tornado Relief.
