The recovery efforts continue across the rest of the state of Alabama, and things seem to be coming along at a relatively decent pace. Since Hurricane Ivan struck the state early Thursday, more than 4.3 million gallons of water, 20.3 million pounds of ice, and 300,000 M. R. E.`s (meals ready to eat),provided by FEMA have been delivered to storm victims. Yesterday, residents from the hardest hit areas finally got to return and see what is left of their homes. When Governor Bob Riley addressed the media yesterday, he discussed how President Bush, upon his visit to Alabama, agreed how bad the state was hit from the massive storm. On a positive note, Governor Riley said all rural ares that were lacking water because pumps lost electricity, now have generators. He added that the recovery effort "is obviously going to cost the state a lot of money."
