MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Following yesterday’s impactful severe weather, Gov. Kay Ivey has responded by issuing a state of emergency for six Alabama counties.

Autauga, Chambers, Coosa, Dallas, Elmore and Tallapoosa were issued the state of emergency after being directly hit by the long thunderstorm system that produced multiple tornadoes throughout Thursday.

Gov. Ivey and state emergency officials will assess the situation to determine if an expanded state of emergency is necessary.

“As severe weather continues impacting the state, I urge all Alabamians in its path to stay weather aware and to be safe,” said Gov. Ivey. “We have already seen parts of the state rattled by this severe weather system, which is why I have issued a state of emergency for six of our counties that were in the path of Mother Nature’s wrath. I am ready to be a helping hand to local officials. Please continue using caution.”
