Residents in Northport's Willowbrook Mobile Home Park are being forced to evacuate Monday as more heavy rainfall approaches West Alabama this week.

A photo of a written notice began circulating social media Monday afternoon, indicating that residents had until the end of the day to leave their homes. The rest of the day, as well as Tuesday, is slated to see significant precipitation and the mobile home park, already drenched, cannot withstand any more saturation.

"We are expecting additional rainfall in this area within the next 24 hours," the notice read. "For your safety, please leave your home before this expected rain event."

Monday's Hazardous Weather Outlook is calling for "damaging straight-line winds up to 60 mph" and localized flooding.

Tuesday through Sunday will see much of the same, as residents in Tuscaloosa County and West Alabama can expect potentially damaging winds, heavy rainfall and river flooding.

The notice added that Northport Baptist Church in downtown Northport is available as a shelter. The American Red Cross is currently on the scene providing shelter and aid to displaced residents.

Residents who need assistance or have questions can call Northport Baptist Church at (205) 345-0100. The church's office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
