Christy Bobo, Northport's District 1 City Councilwoman, urged readers in a Facebook post to not rely on tv or the internet for weather updates as the threat of severe weather looms over the area Tuesday afternoon and evening. She emphasized the need to rely on weather radios to get the most up-to-date and accurate information.

Xfinity expects both internet and TV services to be restored sometime today.
