For a while on Thursday night into Friday morning (December 27-28), it seemed like the heavy rains drenching North-Central Alabama were not going stop.
In total, most places received between 3-6 inches of rain in little more than 24 hours, resulting in the National Weather Service in Birmingham issuing flood warnings throughout the state.
Presently, those warnings are scheduled to expire on Sunday, just in time for another round a heavy rainfall on New Year’s Eve.
Remember, be careful driving near flooded areas. Here is a link to useful tips: https://www.weather.gov/safety/flood
On a more lighter note, the torrential rains have produced spectacular scenes along rivers and at waterfalls throughout the northern part of the state. Twitter and Facebook have both captured photos and videos at some of our favorite places, Noccalula Falls, Catoma Falls, Desoto Falls, Little River Falls and Jefferson County’s own Turkey Creek.
Let’s take a tour across the state!
