The tornado that hit an Alabama high school on Thursday is touching the lives of everyone in that region, but it's also hitting close to home for one woman in Albemarle County.
The American Red Cross in Charlottesville said that they are providing assistance to the grandmother of one of the students killed by the tornado that directly hit Enterprise High School.
"Our biggest concern is to make sure that she is able to deal with the news of the tragedy, and to make sure our mental health and condolences teams are able to touch base with her," said Rick Alatorre of the Charlottesville Chapter of the American Red Cross.
The American Red Cross in Charlottesville says that it's also on "stand-by alert" to assist others affected by the storms.
