A Note from Governor Kay Ivey

As Hurricane Irma makes landfall in the United States, Alabama must be prepared in the event the storm comes our way. We must also be prepared to help meet the needs of our neighboring states that may face the brunt of the storm. I have spoken with Governor Scott of Florida and pledged the full support of the people of Alabama. I am also remaining in contact with my emergency operations team to monitor any threat Irma may pose to our state. In that vein, I have declared a State of Emergency so that we can respond however necessary at the appropriate time.

We are ready to respond, however we need to, no matter what happens.

Please use this site as a resource and share it with others who may find it helpful. Stay weather aware, and heed whatever warnings are issued for your location.

Alabama is ready; please make sure you are too.

May God bless each of you and all those in the path of Hurricane Irma, especially our neighbors in Florida.
