  • Subtropical Storm Alberto has formed near Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula

However, in SC, photojournalist Aaron Smeltzer and television news anchor, Mike McCormick, died on Monday after a tree that had been uprooted from rain-slacked ground collapsed on their vehicle.

The two, who worked for the NBC affiliate in Greenville, S.C., died in Polk County, just over the state line in North Carolina, shortly after interviewing fire department officials.

"I strongly encourage everyone to be safe and stay informed", Mayor LaToya Cantrell said in a statement.

As of Monday at 8 a.m., the storm was located about 165 miles south-southeast of Destin.

The weather service said its meteorologists confirmed a weak tornado with maximum winds of 85 miles per hour (147 kph) hit an area around Cameron, South Carolina, on Monday afternoon.

Flooding is said to be the greatest concern in coastal areas of the southeastern United States as Storm Alberto nears landfall on the Florida Panhandle on the afternoon of America's annual Memorial Day holiday. "Mainly dry with partly to mostly sunny skies, but a few brief showers and perhaps an isolated t-storm possible this afternoon" southeastern MA and parts of CT and Rhode Island.

"The main thing we would advise people is to not pay too much attention to the maximum winds", Zelinsky said. Then the rainfall and flooding threats. So, as Alberto moves inland and begins to weaken, don't assume the event is over. This means the potential for some heavy rains at times. It's expected to speed up a bit over the next few days, as it takes a northward to north-northwestward motion.

"We're not expecting the season to be one of the most active on record", said Gerry Bell, lead hurricane season forecaster with NOAA's Climate Prediction Center. There, almost two inches of rain fell, while some four inches fell in other areas, the Panama City News Herald reported. More than an inch of rain had already fallen in both Tallahassee and Apalachicola.

"The combination of storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline", the NHC said, with water potentially reaching 1 to 3 feet above ground if the peak surge occurs during high tide.

Forecasters said Alberto could bring life-threatening high water to southern coastal states when it slams an area from MS to western Georgia with up to 12 inches (30 cm) of rain and possible tornadoes. Authorities spent the day warning swimmers to keep out of the surf because of life-threatening swells and rip currents.

Alberto, the first storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, spawned scattered flooding in Alabama as it weakened into a subtropical depression on Tuesday, a day after two journalists were killed in North Carolina when a tree fell on their auto.
