Alabama Power to open spillways at Martin Dam

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The heavy rainfall has prompted Alabama Power Co. to advise that spill gates will be opened at Martin Dam.

The power company said gate operations will begin at 6 a.m. (CDT) Tuesday due to heavy rainfall that has occurred over the Tallapoosa River Basin reservoirs.

Residents are urged to take necessary steps to protect their property.
