Severe thunderstorms are some of the most unpredictable weather we receive in Alabama. A storm can pop up out of no where and catch you off guard. To help you prepare for those uncertain situations, we want to provide you with the most important information about these storms.
A tornado is a violent, rotating column of air extending from a thunderstorm to the ground with the most violent producing massive destruction with wind speeds of 250 mph or more. Some damage paths can be as large as creating paths of 50 miles wide
Straight-line winds is used to describe ground-level winds that come out of a thunderstorm and do not have rotation. When winds travel at speeds exceeding 57 mph, the storm is classified as a severe thunderstorm
As the state of Alabama generally sees tornadoes as its most common form of severe weather, shelters are often sought by travelers and those whose homes are either unsafe or not accessible at the time of inclement weather nor thereafter.
In cases of inclement weather, we often find ourselves wondering who we should call to get pertinent information. However, many of the people we call rely on area residents to provide information to be dispensed to the masses.
The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a Winter Storm Advisory for Tuscaloosa County in effect until 6pm Thursday, February 13. Sleet, snow, and freezing rain are likely over the next two days.
