Another round of severe weather with damaging winds is expected to sweep across the South on Wednesday, bringing damaging winds in Alabama and Georgia, according to forecasters. National Weather Service meteorologist John De Block told the Associated Press he expects storms to start around 4 a.m. Wednesday and last into the evening in southern and western Alabama.
The latest storm system is likely to bring tornadoes, and there’s a strong chance of baseball-sized hail. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley declared a State of Emergency that will last until severe weather expected to hit the state Wednesday subsides. Bentley said in a press release that 50 National Guard soldiers will also be deployed in the state. MORE
