Our hearts go out to all the people who lost so much in the storms and flooding this past week. You truly don't appreciate how lucky you are until you see the stories of the people who lost loved ones, homes or family pets.

Here at WMC-TV 5, we're working with the American Red Cross to help provide relief for the people who were hurt by these storms. If you are able to make a donation, please reach out to the Red Cross or one of the other organizations working to help people in our area.

I want to acknowledge the great work of Dave Brown and his colleagues on the Action News 5 StormTeam for their tireless efforts throughout the weekend.  And also, I would like to thank all of you who helped with our coverage of the storms and the resulting damage.

We fielded many hundreds of calls from viewers regarding flooding problems and we received more than 2,000 photographs and videos of the storm damage that were sent to the My 5 section of our website. Your contributions made our coverage of the storms even more complete.

That's my turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
