Recommended Posts

MONTGOMERY– Governor Kay Ivey on Tuesday declared a statewide State of Emergency in anticipation of severe weather moving through Alabama starting on Tuesday. The National Weather Service is forecasting significant flash flooding possible Tuesday through Thursday as tropical moisture moves northward into the state.

The National Weather Service predicts heavy rain combined with the current saturated soil conditions will result in the potential for significant flash flooding, especially closer to the coast. This statewide State of Emergency is effective as of Tuesday at 10:00 a.m.

“Hurricane season is underway and that means the potential for increased tropical activity along the Gulf Coast,” Governor Kay Ivey said. “To ensure the state of Alabama is prepared, I have issued a State of Emergency effective today. This State of Emergency will guarantee state resources are on standby and are ready to assist impacted communities if necessary.”
