The SPC has extended “High Risk” (level 5/5) for severe storms today in the northwest quarter of the state. Threat levels diminish to the south and east, but the vast majority of the state is under the threat for severe weather.

 

Now is the time to prepare. First, download the free Alabama News Network weather app:

Next, make sure you have more than one way to get weather alerts. A NOAA weather radio in addition to your phone (with your emergency alerts turned on) make for a good combination. Do not depend on sirens to keep you protected.

Know where to go inside your home if severe weather is imminent. If you live in a mobile home, you need to find sturdy shelter somewhere else. Plan now for what you will do.

Alabama News Network will bring you live coverage on-air, online and on your phone. We will be staffed around the clock until the severe weather threat passes.
