A south Georgia storm chaser was in Tuscaloosa when a deadly tornado hit the Alabama town. He captured the destruction on tape.

Rick Lipscomb is a Storm chaser from Colquitt County and captured nature's fury on camera, the aftermath devastated communities across the southeast. At least 290 people died, 15 in Georgia. On Thursday some south Georgia volunteers were on call to respond.

"Those available to leave right now with the Southwest Georgia Chapter of the American Red Cross are on standby," said Mari Wright, American Red Cross Flint River Chapter.

The Red Cross housed more than 2,700 hundred people in shelters Wednesday night.
