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

* overview... at 100 am CDT, sub-Tropical Storm Alberto was located
over the northwestern Caribbean Sea and was moving slowly east
near 4 mph. The system is expected to begin moving north later
today with a faster motion to the north expected Saturday night
and Sunday. Tropical impacts should begin to be felt across
southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi by late
Sunday and Sunday night and persist through Tuesday morning. The
primary impact will be heavy rainfall that could produce inland
flooding. Secondary impacts will be storm surge, tornadoes, and
tropical storm force winds.

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

* flooding rain:
prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across portions of the Mississippi coast and
extreme southeast Louisiana and south Mississippi. Potential
impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

* Wind:
prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
extreme southeast Louisiana and coastal 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. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* Surge:
prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across the immediate coast of Mississippi and also
for east facing shores outside of the hurricane protection system
in far southeast Louisiana. 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.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* other preparedness information:

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and emergency supplies
kit and take necessary actions to protect your family and secure your
home or business.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track since hazards such as flooding rain, damaging
wind gusts, storm surge, and tornadoes extend well away from the
center of the storm.

If in a place that is vulnerable to high wind, such as near large
trees, a manufactured home, upper floors of a high-rise building, or
on a boat, plan to move to safe shelter.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low-lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley, or near an already swollen river, plan to
move to safe shelter on higher ground.

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with orders that
are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives of
others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be concluded
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds or flooding can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be sure to let friends and family members know of your intentions for
weathering the storm and your whereabouts. Have someone located away
from the threatened area serve as your Point of contact. Share vital
contact information with others. Keep cell phones handy and charged.

Check on those who may not be fully aware of the situation or who are
unable to make personal preparations.

If you are a visitor, know the name of the County or Parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Closely monitor weather.Gov, NOAA Weather Radio and local news
outlets for official storm information. Listen for possible changes
to the forecast.

There is a threat from tornadoes with this storm. Have multiple ways
to receive tornado warnings. Be ready to shelter quickly.

    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* Surge:
prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across the immediate coast of Mississippi and also
for east facing shores outside of the hurricane protection system
in far southeast Louisiana. 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, prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts along the shores of Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas.

Elsewhere across southeast Louisiana and south Mississippi, little to
no impact is anticipated.


Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* other preparedness information:

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and emergency supplies
kit and take necessary actions to protect your family and secure your
home or business.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track since hazards such as flooding rain, damaging
wind gusts, storm surge, and tornadoes extend well away from the
center of the storm.

If in a place that is vulnerable to high wind, such as near large
trees, a manufactured home, upper floors of a high-rise building, or
on a boat, plan to move to safe shelter.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low-lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley, or near an already swollen river, plan to
move to safe shelter on higher ground.

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with orders that
are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives of
others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be concluded
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds or flooding can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be sure to let friends and family members know of your intentions for
weathering the storm and your whereabouts. Have someone located away
from the threatened area serve as your Point of contact. Share vital
contact information with others. Keep cell phones handy and charged.

Check on those who may not be fully aware of the situation or who are
unable to make personal preparations.

If you are a visitor, know the name of the County or Parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Closely monitor weather.Gov, NOAA Weather Radio and local news
outlets for official storm information. Listen for possible changes
to the forecast.

There is a threat from tornadoes with this storm. Have multiple ways
to receive tornado warnings. Be ready to shelter quickly.

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

Overview... at 700 PM CDT, sub-Tropical Storm Alberto is moving erratically
toward the east near 2 mph off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. The system is
expected to begin drifting to the north tonight and move into the southern Gulf
of Mexico Saturday. Tropical impacts should begin to be felt across southeast
Louisiana and southern Mississippi by late Sunday and Sunday night and persist through
Tuesday morning. The primary impact will be heavy rainfall that could produce
inland flooding. Secondary impacts will be storm surge, tornadoes, and tropical
storm force winds.

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

* flooding rain:
prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across portions of the Mississippi coast and extreme
southeast Louisiana. Potential impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

Elsewhere across southeast Louisiana and south Mississippi, little to
no impact is anticipated.

* Wind:
prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
extreme southeast Louisiana and coastal 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. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* Surge:

low lying areas. Increased water levels on area rivers and
streams. High rain rates may briefly overwhelm pumping
capacities until rates diminish.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

Additional flash flood watches may be extended in area and time
at a later time throughout the weekend as the situation unfolds.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.





1036 PM CDT Fri may 25 2018

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 7 am CDT
Tuesday...

* coastal flooding... 1 up to 3 feet above normal tides.

* Timing... Sunday through at least early Tuesday.

* Impacts... minor inundation of tidal areas around Lake
Pontchartrain and Maurepas outside of the hurricane risk
reduction levee system. Some minor flooding of lower reaches
of rivers and streams that drain into the tidal lakes.
Secondary roads may become impassible at high tides.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.
