Hurricane Statement
Issued: 10:34 PM CDT May. 25, 2018 – National Weather Service

This product covers portions of southwest Alabama... northwest Florida... south
central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.

**Alberto still moving slowly over the northwestern Caribbean sea**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a storm surge watch and tropical storm watch are in effect for
      Baldwin central, Baldwin coastal, Escambia coastal, Mobile
      central, Mobile coastal, Okaloosa coastal, and Santa Rosa
      coastal

* storm information:
    - about 790 miles south-southeast of Mobile al or about 770 miles
      south of Pensacola FL
    - 19.4n 85.7w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement east or 90 degrees at 5 mph

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

Alberto will move slowly northward towards the north central Gulf Coast
through Monday. Alberto is currently forecast to move into coastal
Mississippi or coastal Alabama early Monday evening. This system will
bring copious amounts of rain to the area mainly from Saturday night into
Tuesday. Storm surge inundation of 2 to 4 feet, possibly higher, are
expected mainly Sunday night into Monday. Isolated tornadoes will also
be possible, mainly Sunday night into Monday night.

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

* flooding rain:
prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across extreme southeast Mississippi, extreme southwest Alabama
and the western Florida Panhandle. 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, 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.

Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts roughly north of Highway 84.

* Surge:
prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across coastal portions of Alabama and the western Florida
Panhandle. 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.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

* Wind:
prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
portions of southwest Alabama... northwest Florida... south central
Alabama... and inland southeast 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.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
portions of southwest Alabama... northwest Florida... south central
Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.. 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.


* 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 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.

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

* evacuations:

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

* 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 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.

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

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: localized storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for up to 2 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: begins Sunday morning

    - potential threat to life and property: potential for storm
      surge flooding greater than 1 foot above ground
        - plan: plan for storm surge flooding greater than 1 foot
          above ground.
        - Prepare: efforts should now be underway to prepare for
          storm surge flooding, especially in low-lying vulnerable
          areas.
        - Act: take actions to protect life and property. Prepare to
          leave if evacuation orders are given for your area.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
          immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas
          farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
        - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become
          overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous
          in places where surge water covers the Road.
        - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes,
          mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
        - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks,
          boardwalks, and piers. A few small craft broken away from
          moorings.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 4-8 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - potential threat to life and property: potential for moderate
      flooding rain
        - plan: emergency plans should include the potential for
          moderate flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues
          are possible.
        - Prepare: consider protective actions if you are in an area
          vulnerable to flooding.
        - Act: heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take
          action may result in serious injury or loss of life.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - 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, 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.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - potential threat to life and property: potential for a few
      tornadoes
        - plan: emergency plans should include the potential for a
          few tornadoes.
        - Prepare: if your shelter is particularly vulnerable to
          tornadoes, prepare to relocate to safe shelter before
          hazardous weather arrives.
        - Act: if a Tornado Warning is issued, be ready to shelter
          quickly.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - 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.
