Spring has finally arrived and with it, spring storms. Alabama can have some of the more violent spring storms in the country. In fact, recent data from the National Weather Service (NWS) indicates that the region of the state served by the local NWS office is second behind a region in Mississippi for tornado warnings. That includes areas in the Midwest!
The key to staying safe is preparation. Know what your risk is and know what kind of action you need to take when a watch or warning is issued. The NWS has prepared an excellent resource for increasing your knowledge and tools to help you stay safe.
