An Alabama woman is gathering lost mementos from this week's storms and putting them out for the owners to find — on Facebook.

Patty Bullion says after the winds passed Wednesday, there was a rain of family photos, Bible pages, personal papers and other scraps in her yard. She said a pregnant woman's ultrasound photo was the first thing she found outside her house in the small town of Lester.

Bullion started taking pictures of the items and posting them on a Facebook page. She's inviting others to do the same with found items.

More than 550 photos were on the site by Friday. People have itentified 40 items, Bullion said.

The site is called "Pictures and Documents found after the April 27, 2011 Tornadoes."
