States of Emergency Declared in Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida

Monday, 28 May 2018 06:00:00 -05:00

Subtropical storm Alberto is expected to make landfall on Florida's Panhandle today. The storm is forecasted to stay below hurricane strength. The Governors of Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi have declared States of Emergency covering multiple counties in Alabama and Mississippi, and all of the state of Florida.

With winds below hurricane force, Alberto's greatest threat is from flooding although some wind damage to light structures and downed trees is possible. Although the storm is tracking north through Alabama, heavy rainfall is also expected to the east with the heaviest impacting the Florida panhandle and moving into Georgia and up the eastern seaboard later tonight.
