Alabama is under a state of emergency. Governor Robert Bentley made the announcement Thursday after days of heavy rain.
“Many parts of Alabama have experienced excessive rainfall and flooding is a major concern,” Governor Robert Bentley said. “By issuing a State of Emergency, I have directed all state agencies to take necessary actions to be prepared to respond to the anticipated flooding across Alabama. We will actively monitor the flooding, and are prepared to respond to any requests for assistance.”
The Alabama Emergency Management Agency is helping out affected counties.
