Governor to discuss Debby, severe weather sales tax holiday

DAPHNE - AL -

People along the Gulf Coast are watching Tropical Storm Debby and beginning to make preparations for the storm. It's expected to make landfall a week ahead of the state's first severe weather sales tax holiday.

Governor Robert Bentley was originally scheduled to talk about the July 6-8 sales tax holiday on all severe weather preparedness items Monday at the Home Depot in Daphne. He will now also focus on Debby.

The governor will be joined by Alabama Emergency Management Agency Director Art Faulkner. They will provide the latest details on Tropical Storm Debby and discuss how the state is monitoring the storm and preparing for any possible landfall.

Sunday, Debby caused flooding and possible tornadoes in Florida. It prompted road and beach closures from Tampa to Pensacola.

Right now, meteorologists are still not certain what path Debby will take.
