Situation overview
------------------

Subtropical storm Alberto is moving northward toward the Florida
Panhandle. Tropical storm warnings remain in effect for the entire
Florida Gulf Coast, as well as inland portions of the Florida
Panhandle, southeast Alabama and the western Florida Big Bend.
Alberto is forecast to slow down and turn toward the northwest,
roughly paralleling the coast before making landfall along the
Panhandle coast between Panama City and Destin Monday afternoon.

The threat for tropical storm force winds remains the same across
the Florida Panhandle and has decreased slightly for the Florida Big
Bend and southwest Georgia. The greatest threat for storm surge
impacts will be on Monday. The threat for today has diminished as we
approach low tide. However, some coastal flooding is still expected
during the overnight and Monday high tide cycles with 2 to 4 feet of
inundation possible. There is a continued threat for heavy rain and
flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for the
Panhandle and Big Bend, southeast Alabama, and extreme southwest
Georgia. Rainfall totals of 4 to 8 inches with isolated higher amounts
to 12 inches are possible in this area. There is a risk for isolated
tornadoes across the entire tri-state region from this evening through
Monday.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across eastern Florida Panhandle... Florida Big Bend... southeastern
Alabama and southwestern Georgia. Potential impacts include:
    - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* Flooding rain:
protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across the eastern Florida Panhandle... Florida Big
Bend... southeastern Alabama and southwestern Georgia. Potential
impacts include:
    - moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and
      rescues.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter
      currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially
      in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals,
      arroyos, and ditches overflow.
    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations.
      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid
      inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as
      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions
      become hazardous. Some Road and bridge closures.

* Surge:
protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across Franklin and Wakulla counties in particular. Potential
impacts in this area include:
    - areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by
      waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast.
    - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become
      weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low
      spots.
    - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and
      numerous rip currents.
    - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
      Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in
      unprotected anchorages.

Also, protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts across the remainder of the Florida Big Bend and eastern
Panhandle coastlines.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across eastern Florida Panhandle... Florida Big Bend... southeastern
Alabama and southwestern Georgia. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations:
listen to local official for recommended preparedness actions,
including possible evacuation. If ordered to evacuate, do so
immediately.

* Other preparedness information:
now is the time to complete all preparations to protect life and
property in accordance with your emergency plan. Ensure you are in a
safe location before the onset of strong winds or possible flooding.

If you are relocating to safe shelter, leave as early as possible.
Allow extra time to reach your destination. Many roads and bridges
will be closed once strong winds arrive. Check the latest weather
forecast before departing and drive with caution.

Keep cell phones well charged. Cell phone chargers for automobiles can
be helpful, but be aware of your risk for deadly Carbon monoxide
poisoning if your car is left idling in a garage or other poorly
ventilated area.

If you are a visitor, be sure to know the name of the city or town in
which you are staying and the name of the County or Parish in which it
resides. Listen for these locations in local news updates. Pay
attention for instructions from local authorities.

Never drive through a flooded roadway. Remember, turn around don't
drown!

If a Tornado Warning is issued for your area, be ready to shelter
quickly, preferably away from windows and in an interior room not
prone to flooding. If driving, scan the roadside for quick shelter
options.

Closely monitor weather.Gov, NOAA Weather Radio or local news outlets
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather
warnings.
