Subtropical Storm Alberto moves to gatecrash Memorial Day outings

Subtropical Storm Alberto moves to gatecrash Memorial Day outings

Alberto is now making landfall at Laguna Beach near the Walton and Bay county line, according to a report from the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

People who took those supplies will be better prepared as the hurricane season gets its official start on Friday, said county spokeswoman Brandi Whitehurst.

Alberto's top winds rose to 50 miles (80 kilometers) per hour early Sunday, up from 40 earlier, the National Hurricane Center said in a 11 a.m.

Swells generated by Alberto will continue to affect the eastern and northern Gulf Coast Tuesday, meteorologists said.

Between 2 and 6 inches of rain could soak Alabama and western Georgia on Tuesday, and isolated deluges of 12 inches also are possible as the system heads into the Tennessee Valley on its way to the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region. Locally heavy rain can be expected throughout Memorial Day.

Atlantic hurricane season is officially underway, with the first named storm, Alberto, forming even before the official June 1 kick off of Hurricane Season. As Alberto's weakening center headed inland it was deprived of the warm Gulf waters that fuel tropical weather systems.

The center said a tropical storm warning is in effect from the Suwannee River in Florida to the Mississippi-Alabama state line.

Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos to face no action for Loris Karius clash
It's even worse as we all felt that we could have beaten Real Madrid and we were in the game for a long time. He stated through his Twitter acount that it was a very tough night.

Minor power outages were reported in north Florida, and the state's emergency response team started closing shelters yesterday, citing a lack of need.

The center of what was once Alberto is moving over northwest Alabama.

Alberto disrupted long Memorial Day holiday weekend plans along from Pensacola in the Florida Panhandle to Miami Beach and other areas along the northern Gulf Coast, forced beachgoers out of the the water and prompted evacuations of low-lying areas.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released the annual hurricane season forecast Thursday in which they call for 10 to 16 named storms, with five to nine hurricanes.

"We want to make sure we can move a little bit of water downstream to create a little bit of extra storage just in case we do get some of the heavy rains that Alberto promises the area over the next several days", said Jim Hopson, a spokesperson with TVA. One to four hurricanes could be "major" with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour.

Alberto could cause $400 million to $500 million across the South, including damage to cars crushed by toppled trees, wrecked roofs and flooding, Watson said in an interview. The season is likely to be "near or above normal", according to the NHC.
