Auburn postpones White House visit

Posted by Tom Fornelli

In the wake of the devastating tornadoes that hit across five states on Wednesday, the Auburn Tigers have postponed their visit to the White House. The Tigers had been scheduled to visit the White House and President Barack Obama on Friday to celebrate their national championship, but obviously, there are a lot more important things to worry about in the state of Alabama and surrounding areas right now.

There is no word on when Auburn's visit will be rescheduled.

Ironically enough, President Obama will now be making a visit to Alabama to survey the damage caused by numerous tornadoes that have caused at least 249 deaths over a five state area. President Obama has already declared the state of Alabama, the hardest hit by the tornadoes, to be in a state of emergency.

To help out the people of Alabama who have seen their homes and businesses lost due to the storm, text #90999 to "REDCROSS" to make a $10 donation to the relief efforts.
