Huh? It's just a cold rain over here in Georgia. Doesn't feel like a threat.

Depends on where you are in the state.

If you really want a good handle on the weather, go to alabamawx.com

Sunshine, you need to follow James Spann on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jamesspann He is a meteorologist at one of the Birmingham's ABC 33/40 TV station. Tuscaloosa is in the Birmingham coverage area, and he pays special attention to Tuscaloosa since he's a U of Alabama grad.

He also writes a blog: Strong Storms Tomorrow Night : The Alabama Weather Blog Information on both is kept up-to-the-minute. Make sure you can get ABC 33/40 on TV...the audio is often picked up by local radio stations.
Do you have a weather radio? If not, get one - they are battery powered (always have extra batteries on hand) and pick up only the National Weather Service broadcasts, which will give you alerts and warnings.

I turn it on if I think the weather will be bad.

Tonight, I believe it's just going to be some strong thunderstorms.

My wife was very anxious about it and stayed up all night watching the news. I slept through every bit of it - and had no idea so much rain had fallen. Now half the metro seems to be under water. And more rain on the way... Glad there were no tornadoes though.

I agree get you a weather radio. They make them now where you can select what warnings you want to get.

It is unnerving especially if you have never been around tornadoes.

I have lived in NE AL for 8 years and we have had only one tornado touch down here and that was one of april 27th tornado outbreak

Here's a different thought. If you have a smartphone, I would instead recommend iMap Weather Radio. That thing is great and it travels with you wherever you go.
