Hurricane warnings have been issued for a portion of the Florida Gulf Coast as Tropical Storm Alberto strengthens. As of 10 a.m. CDT, Alberto's maximum sustained winds had increased to almost 70 mph, just 4 mph short of Category 1 hurricane strength. A hurricane warning means hurricane conditions can be expected in the next 24 hours. The warning area covers the Gulf Coast from Longboat Key to the Ochlockonee River.
Some additional intensification -- possibly to hurricane strength -- is likely before Alberto swirls ashore somewhere in northwest Florida late tomorrow. It should be noted, however, that the most significant effects of the storm precede the center. A tornado watch is in effect for much of the Florida Peninsula, and flash flood watches are posted for portions of the Panhandle and west coast.
Locally heavy downpours will soak northern Florida and extreme southern Georgia over the next couple of days. Many spots will pick up 4 to 8 inches of rain with isolated 10-inch amounts possible. A storm surge of 8 to 10 feet above normal tide levels can be expected in the warned area which extends from Longboat Key to the Ochlockonee River.
And in case you dont know where I am..
