Tornado damage cancels CPC Conference in Albertville

ALBERTVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The Regional Children's Policy Council Conference to be held in Albertville on Tuesday, April 27th, has been cancelled.

In Albertville, some of the heaviest damage from the Saturday night tornado appears to have been in the area of Main Street, the location of First Baptist Church where our conference was to be held.  It is our understanding that the church itself sustained some damage.

We do not want to bring unnecessary traffic into the area and we are following the advice of Emergency Management and cancelling the conference.

Our thoughts are with the people of Albertville and the surrounding area as they recover from the effects of the storm.
