Eight Alabama counties are under a "State of Emergency," declared by Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey earlier Tuesday in advance to Tropical Storm Gordon's arrival.
The declaration includes Baldwin, Mobile, Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Escambia, Monroe and Washington counties. The declaration was first announced publicly on Twitter by Alabama Emergency Management Agency director Brian Hastings.
Alacare asks that anyone in the affected areas to check on their elderly neighbors to make sure they are able to cope with the weather.
Alacare patients can call 1-888-alacare (1-888-252-2273) with any concerns about their scheduled visits.
