Severe Weather Awareness Week – February 18-22, 2019

Governor Kay Ivey has declared February 17th-22nd, 2019, as Severe Weather Awareness Week in Alabama.  Each day during this week we will provide information about different types of storms and how to prepare for each accordingly.

There are many aspects to being prepared for severe weather, but first and foremost, KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE!! No matter what you have in your severe weather plan, it will never be complete until you can pinpoint your location on a map. Take a few moments NOW to learn some local geography so you can be more prepared when severe weather  strikes. Don’t just stop at your home location, learn surrounding counties and communities.  This extra bit of knowledge will help you determine if storms in other areas are heading your way.  Here is a Story Map that highlights some information about each of the 39 counties in Central Alabama.
