MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley has declared a state of emergency in Alabama as a severe weather front moves into the state.
Riley made the announcement Sunday afternoon as the storm expected to dump snow and ice across the state moved closer. He said the state Department of Transportation had readied snow and salt trucks to help clear icy roads and state troopers were working 12-hour shifts to help motorists.
Riley asked all residents to stay home Sunday night and Monday unless necessary.
Auburn University has canceled all viewing parties and other events planned for Monday night's BCS championship game against Oregon. School districts and colleges across the state have canceled classes and other scheduled events.
