Alberto batters Gulf Coast as it heads north

Damaged caused by the Great Storm in Britain 1987

"Alberto is now a subtropical depression as it continues to lose its strength and rains out over the Tennessee Valley", Abrams told Newsweek. The storm packed sustained winds of 45 miles per hour.

With such an early start to the season, it makes sense to be concerned.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 996 mb (29.42 inches).

Heavy rain and flash flooding is occurring over parts of the Panhandle.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Polk County Local Government warned residents on its Facebook page to watch for flash flood warnings through Wednesday.

Cumulative rainfall forecast valid from Monday morning through Thursday morning. And in the Tampa Bay area on the central Gulf Coast, cities offered sandbags for homeowners anxious about floods.

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

Oil sinks further as OPEC and Russia look to raise output
U.S. crude production has increased by about 25% since mid-2016 as producers look to capitalize on rising prices. The global inventories are now close to OPEC's target, helping lift prices to three-year highs in recent weeks.

The storm originated east of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula last Friday. Rain is in the forecast today and for much of the rest of the work week. With maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (72 kph), Alberto was moving north at 9 miles per hour (14 kph).

Despite weakening to a depression, the threat from Alberto remained from possible flooding and heavy rains.

Some tornadoes could also be touched off.

The governors of Alabama, Florida and MS have all declared states of emergency. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes.That tropical moisture will make its way into North Carolina Monday and Tuesday. "Even after the storm, the swells are still traveling our direction creating rip currents".

The Department also asks that people who do not believe their homes will hold up to the sustained winds, typically mobile homes and older structures, consider alternative arrangements. "North Carolina needs to take Alberto seriously", Cooper said in a news release.

"Strong squalls off and on" had kept her inside, she said. "I thought, 'Hmm. I'm gonna do what I can out here'". The impending storm didn't stop them. "So how often can you say you rode a storm out?" The reason the storm has the "sub" prefix is due to the system showing qualities of both a tropical system (warmest part of system is in center) along with qualities of a more traditional cyclone (while weak, it has fronts circulating around it).

Rhumes said they've already prepared for the storm by stocking up on groceries. "We'll hang out and see how it goes". "We come here every year, it's lovely out today".

Sunday will see the return of afternoon and evening showers and storms along with highs in the upper 80's.
