MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Alfa Insurance mobilized adjusters and deployed a Mobile Response Unit to assist with claims following last weekend's storms that spawned deadly tornadoes across the South.

As of Wednesday, Alfa had received almost 1,200 claims associated with the April 15-17 outbreak of storms, according to Senior Vice President of Claims Jerry Johnson.
"We watch the forecast carefully this time of year, and our adjusters were prepared to begin servicing claims as soon as the storms passed," Johnson said. "We began moving extra adjusters into the areas hardest hit by the storms over the weekend. We also set up Alfa's Mobile Response Unit in Tuscaloosa to provide additional support for our local service centers."
The storms claimed seven victims in Alabama, including three members of an Autauga County family, three other family members in Washington County and one person in Marengo County.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with those who lost loved ones," Johnson said. "As the state works to recover from these storms, Alfa's Claims Department is committed to delivering on the company's promise to its policyholders so they can repair and rebuild."
Last week's storms were the latest in a series of severe weather events that have pelted Alabama this spring. Johnson said the company has received about 8,000 storm-related claims in the last month with an anticipated cost of about $50 million.
