TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Two days after he walked through tornado rubble in Alabama, actor Charlie Sheen has begun an online campaign to raise money for storm victims.

The website named "Torpedos against Tornadoes" says that donations will be tax-deductible and will go to Alabama victims of the April 27 twisters that ripped through the South.

The name of the relief campaign is derived from Sheen's touring stage show "My Violent Torpedo of Truth."

Sheen visited tornado-damaged Tuscaloosa this week and pledged to organize a benefit event.
