Alberto will continue to lift north today bringing locally heavy rain and a low threat for tornadoes to east central Florida
"We're not expecting the season to be one of the most active on record", said Gerry Bell, lead hurricane season forecaster with NOAA's Climate Prediction Center.
Elsewhere, Florida's Division of Emergency Management said, about 2,600 customers were without power in northwestern Florida on Monday morning. "Rainfall in the eastern half of the Tennessee Valley - everything east of Chattanooga - has already got double the normal rainfall in the past week and even after Alberto moves north we're still looking at chances or rain every day this week".
The violence of the storm was also felt in Cuba where a bridge in Taguasco collapsed after drenching rains caused the Zaza River to rise. We'll still carry a flash flood watch through the day today with the heavy shower or thunderstorm chance over saturated areas from Alberto's rains yesterday.
Tryon Fire Chief Geoffrey Tennant said he had just given an interview to Mr McCormick when, minutes later, he received a call about the incident.
Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned amid high surf and unsafe conditions. While he says some people are wading along the water's edge, others are taking refuge in bars and restaurants.
Alberto was moving slowly up the Gulf coast, traveling at 8 miles per hour, up from 6 miles per hour at the 8 a.m. advisory. Gusts could get as high as 35 miles per hour.
Meteorologists are calling Alberto a 'subtropical storm.' What the heck is that? Landfall was expected later Monday. It is expected to stay about this strong before its forecast landfall in the northern Gulf Coast on Monday afternoon or Monday night. Maximum sustained winds are near 45km/h.
What's left of Alberto, a very weak broad area of low pressure will get pushed overhead on Friday by a cold front moving in Canada and the Great Lakes.
In Florida, some beaches have been closed and low-lying areas evacuated. It's not clear what will become of the remnants of Alberto late in the week.
The first named storm of this season, Alberto is expected to strengthen as it moves up the Gulf this weekend, CNN quoted the Centre as saying, bringing heavy rains and possible floods to Florida and much of the Southeast in the coming days.
Governors in Florida, Mississippi and Alabama on Saturdaydeclared states of emergency.
At its height, Alberto, the first storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, blasted sustained winds of 105km/h.
