BIRMINGHAM, Ala (WBRC-TV MyFoxAL.com)—SEVERE WEATHER-SCHOOLS
Storm system delays school openings in central Alabama
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- With another potentially dangerous
weather system on track for a late night or early morning arrival
in Alabama, schools in some parts of the state announced delayed
openings for today.
National Weather Service meteorologists said the system has the
potential to spawn isolated tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, heavy
rain, hail and damaging winds.
Since January, at least 50 tornadoes have hit Alabama, including
a record 11 twisters last month.
You are urged to monitor weather radios or your favorite media
outlets for the latest weather watches or warnings.
In south Alabama, Baldwin County emergency officials set up
shelters yesterday in preparation for the storms.
Many schools and school systems throughout central Alabama
announced last night that schools would open an hour or two later
than normal today.
