Contact local EMA officials for shelter opening info and more

(WAFF) -

Area safety officials will generally open shelters once a tornado watch has been issued for the immediate area. Check here for an interactive map with dozens of shelter locations. We advise you to check with your local EMA to verify locations and opening times.

In the event of widespread storm damage and safety alerts, you may want to consult your local officials. They also have lists of places you can go for warmth during a cold weather situation.

Here is a list of social media accounts and other forms of contact for emergency management agencies across North Alabama. Remember, you can also call 211 for resources specific to your location.
