Greg Cook hugs his dog Coco after finding her inside his destroyed home in the East Limestone, Alabama on Friday, March 2, 2012. A reported tornado destroyed several houses in northern Alabama as storms threatened more twisters across the region Friday.

It's clear from this photo that Mr. Cook was grateful to find a member of his family alive and well - Coco the dog.  When Hurricane Katrina destroyed New Orleans in 2005, this  familiar scene happened hundreds of times all over the devastated areas.  Our hearts go out the tornado victims - the known and unknown victims, human and animal.
