ATLANTA (AP) - Two women are turning to the Internet in hopes of finding prom dresses and attire for high school students who lost the clothing in tornadoes.

The women - one in Georgia and the other in Alabama - created Facebook sites so anyone with prom dresses and other items can connect with storm victims who are in need of the clothing for upcoming high school proms.

Tiffiany Stone of Trenton, Ga. - whose own community was hard-hit by tornadoes - used 1 of the sites to offer her red prom dress to any girl who needs it.

One site is called Prom Dresses for Tornado Victims, and the other is Rescue Prom.

In Alabama alone, education officials say the storms heavily damaged 18 schools and officials have been trying to decide how to finish school.
