MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley plans to announce new initiatives to increase statewide disaster preparedness in Alabama.

Bentley will announce the new initiatives at 10 a.m. Thursday in the old House chamber at the Alabama Capitol.

The initiatives are part of the state's Ready Alabama program, which encourages Alabama residents and leaders to plan ahead for disasters.

Bentley will be joined by Congressman Robert Aderholt of Haleyville.

Bentley's announcement comes as he and other state officials keep an eye on Tropical Storm Isaac, which is threatening the Caribbean and could affect Alabama and other southeastern states next week.
