With the enhanced risk of severe weather, it's a good reminder for everyone across the country to be ready for this upcoming severe weather season. In preparation, many states hold "Severe Weather Preparedness Weeks" to inform the public of everything they need to know about what is possible in their area. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=130&v=XcXwNN0yZJk Alabama is wrapping up their event with a way to help cut the costs of safety. Through February 25, 2018 at 11:59 pm, shoppers have the opportunity to purchase severe weather preparedness items free of state sales tax. For details on what is exempt and participating cities/counties, check out the Alabama Department of Revenue Website. https://twitter.com/NWSMobile/status/967436463502655492 If you're not in Alabama, find out when your state preparedness week is.
