Governor Robert Bentley declared a state of emergency for Alabama ahead of potential severe weather this evening into tomorrow.

“I was briefed on the severe weather by Alabama Emergency Management Agency Director Art Faulkner this afternoon, and based on the evidence from the National Weather Service, it is necessary to issue this state of emergency to ensure state resources are available and can be deployed in a timely manner, if necessary,” Bentley said in a release. “Alabamians are no stranger to severe weather, and as state agencies are preparing, I encourage all Alabamians to take this threat seriously and prepare for impact of severe weather. Now is the time for citizens to ensure they have a method to receive the latest weather updates and know the locations of the nearest community safe rooms. It is proven that community safe rooms save lives.”

Bentley’s full declaration can be seen below.
