I-Team: Seeking Shelter
When severe weather hits, you’re told to get to your safe place. If you live in a mobile home that could mean getting out and moving to a safer, more sturdy building, but what if there are no shelters close to where you live?
An Alabama News Network I-Team Extra found some parts of our viewing area with no shelters close by, leaving many people with 15-20 minute drives to get to safety during a storm. Now local Emergency Management Agencies hope to create more Safer Place shelters in areas that need them most.
