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

Alberto continues on a northward motion over the eastern Gulf of Mexico
and is expected to approach the northeast Gulf Coast early Monday.
Alberto is forecast to move into the western Florida Panhandle Monday
morning then continue northward into south central Alabama
through Monday evening. Alberto will have the potential to bring significant
rainfall amounts and flash flooding to the region, especially across the
western Florida Panhandle and much of southwest and south central Alabama.
Tropical storm force winds will likely impact coastal portions of the
region Sunday night into Monday. Storm surge inundation of 2 to 4 feet
is expected mainly Sunday night into Monday and mainly over the western
Florida Panhandle. Isolated tornadoes will also be possible over portions
of south central Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle Sunday night
into Monday night.

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

* flooding rain:
protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible
significant impacts across mainly across southwest and south central Alabama
and the western Florida Panhandle.. 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, 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.

Protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across much of southeast Mississippi.

* Wind:
protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest Florida... south
central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.. 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.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* Surge:
protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across the western Florida Panhandle. 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 coastal portions of Alabama.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across some portions of south central Alabama and the western Florida
Panhandle. 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:
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.

Storm surge is the leading killer associated with tropical storms and
hurricanes! Make sure you are in a safe area away from the surge
zone. Even if you are not in a surge-prone area, you could find
yourself cutoff by flood waters during and after the storm. Heed
evacuation orders issued by the local authorities.

Rapidly rising flood waters are deadly. If you are in a flood-prone
area, consider moving to higher ground. Never drive through a flooded
roadway. Remember, turn around don't drown!

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.

Florida Panhandle. Isolated tornadoes will also be possible over portions
of south central Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle Sunday night
into Monday night.

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

* flooding rain:
protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible
significant impacts mainly across southwest and south central Alabama
and the western Florida Panhandle. 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, 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.

Protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across much of southeast Mississippi.

* Wind:
protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest Florida... south
central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.. 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.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* Surge:
protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across the western Florida Panhandle. 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 coastal portions of Alabama.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across some portions of south central Alabama and the western Florida
Panhandle. 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.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

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:
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 in which
it resides. Listen for these locations in local news updates. Pay
attention for instructions from local authorities.

Storm surge is the leading killer associated with tropical storms and
hurricanes! Make sure you are in a safe area away from the surge
zone. Even if you are not in a surge-prone area, you could find
yourself cutoff by flood waters during and after the storm. Heed
evacuation orders issued by the local authorities.

Rapidly rising flood waters are deadly. If you are in a flood-prone
area, consider moving to higher ground. Never drive through a flooded
roadway. Remember, turn around don't drown!

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.
