This product covers southeast Louisiana and south Mississippi

**sub-Tropical Storm Alberto expected to strengthen as it
moves northward over the eastern Gulf of mexico**

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

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - the storm surge watch and tropical storm watch have been
      cancelled for lower Plaquemines, lower St. Bernard, Orleans,
      and upper St. Bernard
    - the tropical storm watch has been cancelled for Ascension,
      Livingston, lower Jefferson, southern Tangipahoa, St. Charles,
      St. James, St. John The Baptist, St. Tammany, upper Jefferson,
      and upper Plaquemines

* current watches and warnings:
    - a storm surge watch and tropical storm watch are in effect for
      Hancock, Harrison, and Jackson

* storm information:
    - about 560 miles southeast of New Orleans la or about 550 miles
      south-southeast of Gulfport MS
    - 23.3n 85.1w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement north or 10 degrees at 13 mph

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

At 400 PM CDT, sub-Tropical Storm Alberto was moving north at 13 mph in
the eastern Gulf of Mexico. The system is expected to move turn to the
north-northwest toward the north-central Gulf Coast by tomorrow.
Tropical storm impacts should begin to be felt across portions of
coastal Mississippi by Sunday night.

The primary impact will be heavy rainfall that could produce inland
flooding. Rainfall should range 2 to 4 inches across coastal
Mississippi with locally higher amounts possible. Secondary impacts
across coastal Mississippi will be storm surge of 2 to 4 feet above
ground level and tropical storm force winds.

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

* flooding rain:
prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across coastal Mississippi. 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 across southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi
to the east of Interstate 55.

* Wind:
prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
southeast Louisiana and south Mississippi. Potential impacts include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

* Surge:
prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across coastal Mississippi. 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 across east facing shores of southeast Louisiana outside
of the hurricane protection system.

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

* Tornadoes:
little to no impacts are anticipated at this time across southeast
Louisiana and south Mississippi.

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 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.

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.

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 4:32 PM CDT May. 26, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Tuesday evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeast Louisiana and Mississippi, including the
following areas, in southeast Louisiana, lower Jefferson,
lower Lafourche, lower Plaquemines, lower St. Bernard, lower
Terrebonne, northern Tangipahoa, Orleans, southern Tangipahoa,
St. Charles, St. John The Baptist, St. Tammany, upper
Jefferson, upper Lafourche, upper Plaquemines, upper St.
Bernard, upper Terrebonne, and Washington. In Mississippi,
Hancock, Harrison, Jackson, Pearl River, Pike, and Walthall.

* Through Tuesday evening

* for Sunday through Tuesday, Alberto will set the stage for
extended periods of heavy rainfall training. In heavier rain
bands, 2 to 4 inches of rainfall is likely. Outside of rain
bands, lesser amounts generally 1 to 3 inches are possible. The
Mississippi Gulf Coast has the greater potential for the higher
amounts.

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.
