The state feeding unit, feeding personnel, child care personnel, communications personnel (83 personnel in total) and related support equipment are returning to Alabama. Please note that multiple state conventions with feeding units engaged have been ordered to return home.
Recovery teams are proceeding on into the disaster area as requested by Area Command/NAMB.
