Birmingham and North-Central Alabama weather in 2018 had a little bit of everything… hail, tornadoes, a heat wave and year-ending flash floods.
In Bham Now’s story about the Jacksonville State University tornadoes earlier this week, we told our readers we would provide additional information about where you can donate funds to support not only Jacksonville, but other tornado/storm impacted areas such as Cullman and communities throughout Central and Northeast Alabama.
The United Way of Central Alabama has stepped forward to help
On Monday, March 19th, Jacksonville State University was hit by an EF-3 tornado with winds of up to 135 mph. Surrounding communities near the university and towns throughout Alabama also received damage, including the Russelville and Cullman communities.
This past Saturday, friends and families celebrated the 25th Anniversary of Little Canyon National Preserve at the Jacksonville State University Canyon Center in Fort Payne, Alabama. Established by an Act of Congress on October 24th, 1992, the Preserve is Alabama’s only National Park unit dedicated to a natural area.
This upcoming Saturday, October 21st, people throughout the South will travel to Little River Canyon National Preserve to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the park.

Jacksonville State University’s Little River Canyon Center and NASA are teaming up this Friday and Saturday to explore the stars and space.

You’ve heard the story. So the American beatboxer and Siberian throat singers walk into a bar….
Just kidding, of course.
