HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Home, trees, and cars can be replaced, but it's that special picture, important document, or family heirloom that usually causes the most heartache for storm victims, but a facebook page that popped up after the storms hopes to reunite those items with their owners.
It's a social media effort that rivals the physical message boards that you've seen on telephone polls and fences after disasters. The page is called "Pictures and Documents found after the April 27, 2011 Tornadoes" and it is quickly gaining popularity.
A quick scan down the page reveals a look into perfect strangers' lives, perfect strangers who have lost something special.
"We had a picture fall out of the sky while my husband and son were sitting on the porch," said one poster. "The picture is of two young girls that look like they might be in a beauty contest."
"I have a canceled check we found in our yard belonging to Jonathan or Lisa Stewart in Pleasant Grove," said another poster. "I live in Oneonta."
Donna Daughtery knows exactly whose document she found in her yard. "I live in North Gadsden and I found a receipt belonging to Deborah Thompson in Tuscaloosa AL," posted Daughtery.
"Found on my farm in Flintville, Tennessee," said Cindy Mae Furman Andrews about a seemingly decades-old picture of a young girl. "Any info appreciated. Will return to owner immediately." By the way, Tuscaloosa and Flintville are 185 miles apart.
One poster even found a uniform shirt for the Franklin County Sheriff's deputy... in Limestone County!
So, for those of you who may have lost baby pictures of your grown-up child, important bank documents or a love note from that someone special, check out the facebook page, you might just get some good news during these dark days after the storm.
As of Friday afternoon, the page already had over 50,000 fans.
