As Isaac nears landfall on the Gulf Coast, it is a good time to remind you about a free weather warning system.
Weather conditions surrounding a tropical storm or hurricane can include isolated tornadoes and flash flooding – both situations which are addressed by alerting messages in Alabama SAF-T-Net.
You can sign up for weather alerts at www.alabamasaftnet.com.
All Emergency Management Agencies in the state are now able to send custom messages to Alabama SAF-T-Net subscribers in their respective counties. This capability will make it possible for EMAs to communicate pre- and post-event weather and related safety information.
