BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is touring one of the hardest-hit neighborhoods of Birmingham to talk with local residents and first responders.

She met briefly Sunday with two sisters whose home was destroyed by last week's storms. Stephanie Anderson and Sheila Hurd were collecting clothes strewn across the street from the pile of debris that was their mother's home.

Anderson thanked Napolitano for coming to the area. She told her that she appreciated the efforts of everyone who has responded, including the rescue workers who recovered her mother's remains.

The sisters found their mom, 72-year-old Bessie Brewster, at the county morgue.

Hurd says: "I don't know how, who made what happen, but we found her."
