“Have a plan and be prepared to execute it,” Mayor Stimpson said. “Because this storm is going to come ashore in the middle of the night, and if you wait until after dark on Saturday night to start making plans, you might find yourself trapped by water.”
A Hurricane Warning and a Storm Surge Warning were issued for Mobile, Alabama, Friday morning.
In a press conference Thursday night, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey urged residents to stay weather aware throughout the storm:
