Drowning is preventable, yet, more than 1,000 children still die each year from accidental drownings. Most drownings among kids ages 1 to 4 happen in home swimming pools, but studies show that half of these tragedies can be avoided by installing a fence. If you have a backyard pool, be sure to surround it with a barrier at least 4 feet tall with a gate that automatically closes and locks.

We all remember where we were on April 27, 2011 — and we never want to go through a similar experience again.
While we can't control Mother Nature, we can control how we prepare for potential disasters. That's why we have WBRC FOX6 News Meteorologist Matt Daniel WBRC set to join us at Friday's Chick-fil-A at Cullman State of Our Communities Community Session to talk about "Weather Preparedness."
This session is completely FREE to attend, and there will be a giveaway for a weather radio. Please note that you must be present to win! All State of Our Communities events will take place at the Cullman Civic Center.
Thanks to our Community Session Sponsor, Cullman Health & Rehab Center, and to our Corporate Sponsors, CPI Technologies and Cullman-Jefferson Counties Gas District.

The Cullman County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) has gotten several calls that scammers are calling from a "319 area code" claiming to be with the Social Security Administration and are targeting senior citizens.
The scammer will claim the potential victim owes back pay on their social security and needs to refund the money or the scammer will shut off the victims social security.
"We just want to try and get the word out to citizens, mainly our seniors who are targets of this crime, that the U.S. Government nor the State of Alabama will ever call you to solicit money over the phone. That’s not how it works," said Sheriff Matt Gentry.
Please warn any of your family members who are senior citizens and are a target of these type of scams!!!

A vigorous storm system will lift out of the western U.S. today; this is the one that brought snow to places like Los Angeles and Las Vegas in recent days. A deepening surface low will move across the Great Plains, pushing a surface cold front into Alabama tonight, slicing into a warm, unstable airmass. With strong wind fields, unstable air, steep lapse rates, and significant directional and speed shear, the stage is set for severe thunderstorms across parts of the southern U.S.
PLACEMENT: SPC has issued a "moderate risk" (level 4/5) of severe thunderstorms for North Mississippi, and adjacent parts of southern Tennessee and Northwest Alabama. The moderate risk includes cities like Muscle Shoals, Florence, Russellville, and Hamilton. An "enhanced risk" (level 3/5) extends as far east as Huntsville, Jasper, Tuscaloosa, and Livingston. The standard "slight risk" (level 2/5) runs down to Ranburne, Rockford, and Sweetwater. And, the "marginal risk" extends south to Lafayette, Montgomery, and Mobile.
TIMING: The window for severe storms will open across Northwest Alabama at 5:00 this afternoon, with the threat spreading south and east during the night. Storms will weaken after midnight as the upper support lifts away from the state.
THREATS: The highest tornado threat is in the "moderate" and "enhanced" risk areas, although we sure can't rule out one or two down into the "slight" risk. Storms will also be capable of producing damaging straight line winds and some hail. Strong tornadoes (EF-2 or higher) will be possible given the sheared environment.
GRADIENT WIND: Strong south winds will develop today as the pressure gradient tightens across the Deep South. These winds (not related to thunderstorms) will average 12-25 mph, with higher gusts. With the saturated soil conditions, some trees could easily come down as a result today and tonight. Winds will shift around to the west/northwest after the cold front passes through tonight.
FLOODING: A Flash Flood Warning reminds in effect for Colbert, Franklin, and Lauderdale Counties until 12:30p CT as rain continues to fall over the Tennessee Valley this morning. To the south, a decent part of the day will be dry with warm and windy conditions, but flooding will continue along streams, creeks, and rivers. You can check river levels and forecasts anytime here.
Thankfully the storms tonight will be moving quickly, and after tonight we will enjoy three days of rain-free weather.
CALL TO ACTION: Be sure you can hear severe weather warnings. This is the tax-free weekend in Alabama, today is a great opportunity to get a new NOAA Weather Radio for your home with battery backup. And, be sure you can receive warnings on your phone; have WEA (Wireless Emergency Alerts) enabled, and get a good app designed for warnings like this one.
Know where you are going in the event you are under a tornado warning polygon, and in that safe place have helmets (bicycle helmet, batting helmet, etc) for everyone. And, it is a good idea to have hard sole shoes and a portable air horn for everyone.
Storms will end after midnight, and tomorrow will be a sunny, pleasant day with a high in the 60s.
Keep an eye on the blog for forecast updates, and of course, we will be on ABC 33/40 live tonight if tornado warnings are issued.
