Gov. Kay Ivey on Sunday evening declared a state of emergency for 28 western, northwestern and central Alabama counties expected to be affected by a winter storm bringing freezing rain and ice that could cause treacherous road conditions and power outages.
Ivey issued the declaration “out of an abundance of caution,” Press Secretary Gina Maiola said in an email to media. “Issuing this state of emergency is a precautionary measure in the instance the state is severely impacted due to freezing weather,” she said.
Ivey’s state of emergency began at 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 14, for Bibb, Blount, Choctaw, Colbert, Cullman, DeKalb, Fayette, Franklin, Greene, Hale, Jackson, Jefferson, Lamar, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Marengo, Marion, Marshall, Morgan, Perry, Pickens, Shelby, Sumter, Tuscaloosa, Walker and Winston counties.
