Mobile Businesses Slowly Reopen

By Alabama Public Radio

Mobile, AL – Pharmacies, supermarkets and hardware stores in Mobile started reopening Wednesday for the first time since Hurricane Katrina hit Monday.

Mobile resident Jennifer Reese says she was just thankful to find ice at a Bruno's supermarket.
