FULTONDALE, Ala. (WKRG) — There’s already an overwhelming show of support for the family of 14-year-old Elliott Hernandez, who was killed in this week’s EF-3 tornado.
Just three hours after a GoFundMe was created to benefit the family, more than $18,000 had been raised.
Both of his parents were also injured, and their home is a total loss, according to the GoFundMe.
On Wednesday, Governor Kay Ivey toured the damage in Fultondale and offered a few words for the Hernandez family.
“Homes and businesses can be rebuilt, but losing a young soul to a storm like this is beyond heartbreaking,” Ivey said.
