BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

FOX6 News reporter Ronda Robinson has gathered some resources for motorists stranded on the roadways during Tuesday's snow storm.

If you in an emergency situation, please call 9-1-1 immediately. For those stranded on state roads or interstates, you can reach troopers at *47.

Gov. Robert Bentley also advises motorists to call 211 for information on area shelters, warming centers and EMA contact information.

The Red Cross Finder App can help you find the closest shelter. You can also call 1-800-Red Cross (1-800-733-2767).

These Facebook pages and groups are actively trying to match those stranded with resources and shelter:
