In one of the worst tornado outbreaks in history, thousands of people in the South have been left homeless and at least 263 have lost their lives. With a death toll of at least 180 in Alabama alone, the storms have been devastating. Today, several celebs showed support, especially for cities like Tuscaloosa, that were hit particularly hard. Stars from Khloe Kardashian to Rob Thomas had the South in their prayers today. Taylor Swift (pictured), tweeted, "We're at rehearsals watching videos of the tornadoes in Tuscaloosa. Our love and hopes and thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected." Paula Abdul was concerned for acquaintances who might have been affected, tweeting, "gonna pop onto Facebook to check for msgs from family or anyone in #Tuscaloosa #Alabama -more people who've literally lost EVERYTHING..."
While the tornadoes trended across Twitter, some were fortunate enough to have happier things to think about, as well. Adrian Grenier, whose project SHFT is up for a Webby, urged fans to vote to help him win the award. "fellow twitterers u've endured my plea & responded boldly 4 'Shft' 9hrs till victory. VOTE Rwards 2 come http://t.co/MAMBz6u #Onelastpush," he tweeted. According to its website, SHFT is a "new media platform, offering original video series, curated shopping and a host of resources that speak to a modern, inspirational, eco-conscious lifestyle." Omar Epps got behind the idea, joining Adrian's push for support. "@adriangrenier You should win a #webby for your site! Everyone VOTE 'SHFT' now. Last day! http://t.co/H0szH9S"
