Mayor Walt Maddox joined Chris Stewart earlier and helped us understand the potential danger of the incoming storm that will stretch across the entire state of Alabama.

"I think everyone needs to take this very seriously... make sure they have a safe place and make sure they have everything they need."

After the devastation of April 27, 2011, we should heed Mayor Maddox's words, because there is no such thing as being "too safe."

Check out the entire interview here as you prepare for the incoming storms this evening and tomorrow. Also, please reference our Severe Weather Guide for tips and information on keeping you and your family safe in the event of dangerous weather.
