Mobile and Southern Alabama will continue to experience large amounts of rain over this week. Experts with the National Weather Service said Wednesday will be the heaviest day and that this rainfall will likely bring flooding and flash flood warnings.

Meteorologist Brandon Black compared this event of rain to previous rainfalls.

"We have noticed this event has been one of our heavier flooding events that we have had in a long time," he said. "Some of our gauges were in their top-5 highest crests over the past week, which is pretty high for our area."

(TUSCALOOSA, AL)-- A new grant will help health experts discover how the amount of sleep someone gets is related to chronic diseases.

Adam Knowlden is an Associate Professor of Health Science at University of Alabama. The National Institute of Health awarded him a five-year grant to study the relationship between sleep and chronic diseases, and how that’s associated with obesity.

Knowlden thinks it’s important that his work is being conducted in Alabama.
