Alabama is cleaning up again after severe weather that hit the state overnight, killing two people.
This after tornadoes killed more than 240 people in the state last spring. The National Weather Service is installing a new radar system at its offices to better predict severe weather like this.
Weather editor and reporter for USA Today Doyle Rice told Here & Now‘s Robin Young that the new radar will give forecasters a two dimensional picture of an approaching storm, instead of the one dimensional image they see now.
