Flash flood watch in effect for Upstate, WNC, northeast Ga

  • A flood watch is expected for South Florida on Saturday morning as a result of Subtropical Storm Alberto

Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes.

On Monday, Alberto was off the coast of Florida, moving north towards Tennessee. A falling tree killed two TV journalists who were covering the storm in North Carolina.

Gov. Roy Cooper issued a statement calling on North Carolina residents from the mountains to the coast to watch the weather and be prepared.

The rest of the mid-week period will remain unsettled as what's left of Alberto continues to drift north.

Alberto is expected to affect travel on Monday, when many people will return from their holidays.

AL.com reported that double red flags are flying at beaches in Panama City and other areas, which means there are life-threatening rip currents.

"My boyfriend and I usually try to go to the store and stock up on lots of bottled water, and get like canned goods and things that won't go bad if our power goes out", she said.

Heavy rainfall and flash flooding were occurring over parts of the Florida Panhandle into Alabama into Monday evening.

The US National Hurricane Center (NHC) cancelled coastal warnings and watches for the storm, which spun up days before the formal start of the hurricane season on 1 June.

Alberto has also already wreaked havoc in Maryland, where, in Ellicott City, record flash flooding has resulted in Maryland Governor Larry Hogan to declare a state of emergency.

Ivey activated the state's emergency operations centre while the Alabama National Guard activated its high water evacuation teams.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the depression was centered at 11 p.m. Monday about 50 miles west-northwest of Dothan, Alabama.

Alberto could bring isolated storm totals up to 12 inches in areas of the Florida Panhandle into much of Alabama and western Georgia through Tuesday, the NHC said. On average, the Columbia area receives almost 45 inches of rain annually.

Forecasters said the subtropical depression swirling near Birmingham could dump as much as 6 inches of rain on central Alabama. And in the Tampa Bay area on the central Gulf Coast, cities offered sandbags for homeowners anxious about floods.

The remnants of Alberto doused the Deep South with waves of rain Tuesday as the vast, soggy system pushed northward toward the Tennessee Valley.

Stay safe this week and have multiple ways to get your warnings. What had sprung up from the Gulf of Mexico as a subtropical storm was now a vast, soggy system trekking inland as it flung rain - heavy at times - all around the Southeast.
