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. Tropical storm warnings have been extended inland across
southeast Alabama and a bit further east into the western Florida Big
Bend. Alberto is forecast to make landfall between Cape San Blas and
Panama City Beach late tonight into Monday morning.

The threat for tropical storm force winds continues to increase across
the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend, and inland across portions of
southeast Alabama and southwestern Georgia. The greatest threat for
storm surge impacts will be across the western Big Bend on Monday. The
threat for today has diminished somewhat as surge now appears to be
delayed until low tide. However, some coastal flooding is still
expected, with 2 to 4 feet of inundation possible. Across the Panhandle,
the threat for storm surge will peak on Monday. 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. Expected rain amounts of 4 to 8" with
isolated higher amounts are possible in this area. Isolated tornadoes
remain possible across the entire tri-state region both today and
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 remaining Florida Panhandle coast.

* 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 officials for recommended preparedness actions,
including possible evacuations. 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.

If heading to a community shelter, become familiar with the shelter
rules before arrival, especially if you have special needs or have
pets. Take essential items with you from your emergency supplies kit.

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.
