Florida Gov. Declares State Of Emergency Ahead Of Subtropical Storm Alberto

CTSY Associated Press

"I'm doing this because every time we have a hard rain, it floods at my house", Whitlock said. Everyone should take the necessary precautions now and stay informed of the latest weather conditions for their area.

Major storms last year including Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria caused major damage in Florida, Texas, and Louisiana last year. Both Divisions, A and B, will activate Sunday morning. The National Guard soldiers will also provide support in the command and control center.

Alberto is then forecast to track across the eastern Gulf of Mexico tonight through Monday, and approach the northern Gulf Coast in the watch area Monday night.

Storm surge flooding along the coast could reach 2-4 feet from Alberto, according to the hurricane center. "Residents and tourist are strongly encouraging people to closely monitor this forecast". Wind shear and dry air is still plaguing Alberto.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is now around 85 miles south/southeast of Cozumel, Mexico.

Florida and MS launched emergency preparations Saturday ahead of the arrival of Subtropical Storm Alberto, a slow-moving system expected to cause wet misery across the eastern U.S. Gulf Coast over the holiday weekend.

The Big Bend coast, including Indian Pass east to Horseshoe Beach, is under a Storm Surge Watch.

Tropical storm watches were expanded a bit for the northern Gulf Coast and now extend from the Aucilla River in Florida to Grand Isle in Louisiana, including Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas. In Cuba 10 to 15 inches of rain is forecast with isolated totals up to 25 inches in some locations.

Alberto watches and warnings.

Alberto had top sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) early Friday and was located 55 miles (90 kilometers) south of Cozumel, Mexico. As of Saturday, landfall was predicted to be late Monday.

The National Hurricane Center defines subtropical storm as a "subtropical cyclone" in which the maximum sustained wind speed - using the US one-minute average - is 39 miles per hour or higher. However, the primary impact of heavy rain will affect Florida through much of this weekend and impact the Gulf Coast as early as Sunday.

The Mississippi Gulf Coast has the highest potential for those higher amounts of rain, the weather service in New Orleans said Saturday. "Rainfall amounts of 5 to 8 inches, and possibly locally up to double these amounts are possible in this area with this event", the NWS said.

The storm's exact path remains uncertain, and it's not expected to bring the kinds of devastating winds or storm surge that are usually the most significant concerns with tropical storms.

Alberto will likely be the second time Mayor LaToya Cantrell's administration will be tested by severe weather in its first three weeks in office.
