05/04/2020

May 4th, Hurricane Preparedness Week: For us here in Central Alabama, hurricane evacuation is certainly not a common occurrence. However, if you plan on spending time along the coast, you may find yourself in a hurricane evacuation zone, or in a home that would be otherwise unsafe in a hurricane. If so, think now, about where you’d go and how you'd get there if you're told to evacuate. We know that significant impacts from hurricanes, such as flooding, high winds, and tornadoes, can still occur well inland! You do not need to travel hundreds of miles. Identify someone, perhaps a friend or relative who doesn’t live in an evacuation zone or unsafe home, and coordinate with them to use their home as your evacuation destination. Be sure to account for your pets, as most local shelters do not permit them. Put the plan in writing for you and those you care about.

As hurricane season approaches, listen to local officials on questions related to how you may need to adjust any evacuation plans based on the latest health and safety guidelines from the CDC and your local officials.

5/4 5:40a: Scattered showers and storms, a few strong, may develop along and north of I-20 & I-22 this afternoon/evening. Damaging winds would be the main concern with any stronger storms that can develop. Otherwise, most of us stay sunny and warm with highs in the mid/upper 80s to near 90F. #alwx

Did I see somewhere that there would be another starlink flyby tonight??
I was wondering if this was a tornado that hit our neighborhood in Warrior
Can we pls. get an update for the Colbert & Lauderdale County regions?? CURRENT? Thanks so much.
Barbara M Yeager has been hacked. Don't accept a friend request from her. They want money.
What should we expect in various parts of Alabama on Easter Sunday? I saw a post about possible large tornadoes. 😓 Always appreciate the NWS models!
Heart of Dixie lol
Sky picture in Vernon this evening
Did not receive Tornado Watch alert from NOAA Weather Radio (B'ham) 162.550 this evening. Radio plays okay.
you people are a day late and a dollar short EVERY time there is a weather event. Georgia, Mississippi, Florida and Tennessee ALL had a flood warnings WELL ahead of Birmingham. all of a sudden Birmingham decides there is a 2-4 inch rain threat. why did Birmingham only advise of 3/4 inch rain until today? Georgia had threats of 6 inches of ran 3 days ago. Birmingham forecasts will result in people dying, only a matter of time. Incompetence
I am so tired of all this rain!
Is there a way to document participation in the online storm spotter training?
