Tuesday, May 29, 2018 9:03:00 AM -05:00

Subtropical storm Alberto weakened into a subtropical depression after making landfall on the Florida peninsula yesterday. The first named storm of the 2018 hurricane season came ashore Monday afternoon near Panama City, Florida. The wind damage from Alberto was minimal, but two journalists were killed when a tree fell on their vehicle. Alberto dumped up to 4-5 inches of rain in some areas, but no significant flooding was reported. However, forecasters are still concerned that localized flooding may occur as the subtropical depression moves through the Southeast today and tomorrow.
