Greene County church recovering after tornado’s devastation

Like several other businesses, homes and structures, Ezekiel Baptist Church in Eutaw didn’t escape the heavy storms across West Alabama Tuesday, Nov. 29.

A total of nine confirmed tornadoes touched down that night. Greene County was among the hardest hit, as more than 50 people found themselves without a home after their apartment complex’s roof was torn off.

Ezekiel Baptist Church member Corey Cockrell said the church is also a total loss, and it’s devastating for the entire church family.

“This is my home church,” Cockrell said. “We’ve been going here for three, four generations. It hurts to see our church go away like this. We have to rebuild.”

In the meantime, parishioners will most likely be meeting at the Baptist Center in Greene County.
