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

Alberto continues to shift eastward this evening. While the
general path of Alberto is agreed upon fairly well between models, the
finer details regarding landfall location and exact timing remain
uncertain. Regardless of these uncertainties, the threats posed to the
tri-state region remain unchanged. The greatest threat is for heavy
rain and flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch has been issued starting
early Sunday morning 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. Coastal flooding is
possible across the entire Big Bend and Panhandle coast, with 2 to 4
feet of inundation possible. The greatest threat for storm surge
impacts will be across the western Big Bend and mouth of Apalachee Bay
on Sunday, with a continuing but lesser threat on Monday. Across the
Panhandle, the threat for storm surge will peak on Monday. The threat
for tropical storm force winds continues to increase across across the
Florida Panhandle and Big Bend, and inland across portions of southeast
Alabama and southwestern Georgia. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect
for the Florida Gulf Coast. A tropical storm watch remains in effect
for Calhoun, Washington, Holmes, and northern Walton counties in
Florida. Isolated tornadoes remain possible across the entire tri-
state region both Sunday and Monday.

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

* flooding rain:
protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across the eastern Panhandle of Florida and southeast Alabama.
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.

Protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across The Big Bend of Florida and southwest Georgia.

* Surge:
protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across Franklin and Wakulla counties. 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 eastern Big Bend and Panhandle of Florida.

Elsewhere across eastern Florida Panhandle... Florida Big
Bend... southeastern Alabama and southwestern Georgia, little to no
impact is anticipated.

* Wind:
protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across the eastern Panhandle of Florida. Potential impacts in this
area 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.

Elsewhere across eastern Florida Panhandle... Florida Big
Bend... southeastern Alabama and southwestern Georgia, little to no
impact is anticipated.

* 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 official for recommended preparedness actions,
including possible evacuation. If ordered to evacuate, do so
immediately.
