Alabama Governor Kay Ivey has proclaimed a State of Emergency as winter weather is expected to impact much of the state Tuesday.
Ivey signed a proclamation Monday, stating the possible disruption of utilities combined with below-freezing conditions and travel hazards will likely require mutual aid to provide help for those in need.
The Alabama State Emergency Operations Center is being activated as a result of this proclamation.
Schools will not have to make up a snow day as a result of this state of emergency after appealing to the state superintendent.
It is now unlawful for price gouging to occur with lodging or commodity sales including gasoline.
