Being prepared in case of severe weather

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Now that you have your weather radio back up and running, it’s time to make sure everything else is ready to go as well.

Make sure you have a safe place to stay if the weather becomes severe. Go ahead and identify your safe place. Pick an interior room away from windows such as a basement, closet or bathroom. You should have something to cover up with, including a helmet.

You will also want to have a safety kit ready to go. It should include: flashlights, batteries, a weather radio, a charged cell phone and other items you see right there on your screen.
