Watch Tropical Storm Alberto Make Landfall

Flash flooding and even tornadoes are possible due to the storms hitting Florida from Alberto

The US states of Alabama, Florida and MS have declared an emergency ahead of subtropical storm Alberto expected to make landfall on Monday, authorities said.

Alberto is forecast to gradually strengthen as it makes its way toward the northern Gulf Coast, before weakening to a tropical depression as it makes landfall on Monday night or Tuesday.

Subtropical storm Alberto has fizzled into a subtropical depression as it hit the USA state of Alabama, but it is still expected to bring heavy rain and flash flooding even as winds dropped to 48 kilometres per hour.

Forecasters said Alberto could bring risky high water to southern coastal states when it douses an area from MS to western Georgia with up to 12 inches (30 cm) of rain and possible tornadoes.

Tornadoes are also possible tonight over parts of Georgia and southeast Alabama.

Remnants of subtropical storm Alberto roll into central IN, providing most of the area some much-needed rain.

Remnants of Alberto will have moved northeast of us, but rain chances will remain as another disturbance rolls through the area.

A small window of time to survey losses and gather belongings will be given to those in the flood damaged areas, officials say. Kittleman said the missing man was in his 40s and was not a resident of the historic district.

Shortly before 5 p.m. ET, Alberto was moving north at near 9 miles per hour, the NHC said.

In its wake, the large system caused more than 25,000 power outages in Alabama on Tuesday, a day after making landfall on the Florida Panhandle.

The storm had maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour (85 kph) and was moving north at 8 miles per hour (13 kph). The combination of Storm Surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters mov ing inland.

Subtropical Storm Alberto moves northbound over Northwest Florida Monday evening bringing heavy rain, gusty winds and a risk of severe storms to South Alabama and South Georgia. It is still a subtropical storm, meaning that it does not have all of the characteristics of a purely tropical system and is more of a hybrid cyclone. Because of the potential for higher rain totals over the next two days, a flood watch continues. Rain will be heavy and steady at times as well, so flooding is the main concern.

After Alberto is long gone, we still hang on to rain and thunderstorm chances through the end of the week, but chances will be in the scattered category instead of the likely rain we'll see to start the week.

A subtropical storm has a less defined and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from the center.
