Tropical Storm Claudette made landfall in the Gulf region at the very beginning of the weekend. The storm is slowly tracking up the state and entered West Alabama Saturday afternoon.

Saturday evening saw a massive dump of rain, with some areas seeing up to seven inches of water. ABC 33/40 Chief Meteorologist James Spann is monitoring this storm carefully as it makes its way through the state.

As of around 8 p.m. Saturday, the system is parked right above the Northport area and will continue to precipitate for much of the evening. Venturing out, especially in a vehicle, is highly discouraged.

Below is a collection of photos and videos that West Alabama locals have posted on their social media accounts since storms began Saturday.
