Alberto Headed for Mississippi and Florida, Governors Issue Emergency Warnings

Saturday, Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a State of Emergency as subtropical storm Alberto moves north towards the US Gulf Coast, threatening to bring heavy rainfall and flooding by Monday, according to officials.

All 67 Florida counties have issued the notice to give state and local governments enough time and resources to prepare, Governor Scott Tweeted.

Alberto is likely to bring flooding and torrential rains to both states, and a tropical storm watch has been issued for Florida’s panhandle west of Gulf County.

“As we continue to monitor Subtropical Storm Alberto’s northward path toward Florida, it is critically important that all Florida counties have every available resource to keep families safe and prepare for the torrential rain and severe flooding this storm will bring,” said Florida Gov. Rick Scott. The state of emergency declaration is “to make sure that our state and local governments are able to coordinate with federal partners to get the resources they need.”

“Do not think that only areas in the cone will be impacted,” Governor Scott added. “Everyone in our state must be prepared.”

Also, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant authorized the use of the National Guard “and other state resources … should they become necessary.”
