Last week marked the 40th anniversary of one of the deadliest tornadoes to ever hit north Alabama. April has brought some of the most severe weather events our state has ever seen. It's critical for all of us to prepare for emergencies, including natural disasters. Many of us have experienced first-hand the devastation and heartbreaking loss of life that often comes along with violent tornados. One thing that WAFF 48 participates in every year is a weather radio programming event. Again for the next two weeks, we are headed to various locations in the Tennessee Valley to make sure people get their weather radios programmed properly so that if their particular county is in the path of severe weather they can be notified early enough to take shelter. Spring is our primary severe weather season. Make sure your family has a plan of action for these and other potential disasters. We look forward to again helping the residents of the Tennessee Valley stay safe in severe weather throughout the year. I'm Vanessa Oubre, that's "My Take" What's yours?
