Waffle House still cooks up meals despite tornado knocking out power

FULTONDALE, Ala. — Almost nothing can stop Waffle House employees from feeding those who are hungry. Not even a tornado.

An EF-2 tornado touched down in Fultondale, Alabama, and knocked out power to the community.

But employees at the town’s Waffle House didn’t let it stop them. They rolled out a propane-fueled flattop grill and started frying up burgers, WBRC reported.

At one point they ran out of buns, but a neighboring Arby’s gave them what they needed.

WVTM reported that the food went to first responders.

WBRC reported the crew would keep cooking until they ran out.
