Hurricane Statement
Issued: 1:00 AM CDT May. 27, 2018 – National Weather Service

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:
    - none

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

* storm information:
    - about 510 miles southeast of Gulfport MS
    - 24.2n 84.5w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement north-northeast or 15 degrees at 13 mph

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

Overview... at 100 am CDT, sub-Tropical Storm Alberto was moving
north at 13 mph in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. The system is expected
to turn to the north-northwest later today and Sunday night and
approach the northern Gulf Coast late Monday. Tropical storm impacts could
potentially begin to be felt across portions of coastal Mississippi
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.


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.

* Wind:
prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
coastal 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 locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts
across coastal Mississippi. Potential impacts in this area
include:
    - 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.


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.

There is a threat from tornadoes with this storm. Have multiple ways
to receive tornado warnings. Be ready to shelter quickly.

      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.


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 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.

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.

717 PM CDT Sat may 26 2018

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:
    - none

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

* storm information:
    - about 550 miles south-southeast of Gulfport MS
    - 23.4n 84.8w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement north or 10 degrees at 13 mph

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

* overview... at 700 PM CDT, sub-Tropical Storm Alberto was moving
north at 13 mph in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. The system is expected
to turn to the north-northwest Sunday and Sunday night and
approach the northern Gulf Coast Monday. Tropical storm impacts could
potentially begin to be felt across portions of coastal Mississippi
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.


* Wind:
prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
      coastal 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

          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.

* 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: Monday morning until early Monday evening

    - potential threat to life and property: potential for storm
      surge flooding greater than 1 foot above ground
        - the storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Plan: there is little to no threat of storm surge flooding.
          Rough surf, coastal erosion, and life-threatening rip
          currents are possible.
        - Prepare: little to no preparations for storm surge flooding
          are needed.
        - Act: follow the instructions of local officials. Monitor
          forecasts.

    - Realized impacts: being assessed
        - little to no additional surge impacts expected. Community
          officials are now assessing the extent of actual surge
          impacts accordingly.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 1-3 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - potential threat to life and property: potential for localized
      flooding rain
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Plan: emergency plans should include the potential for
          localized flooding from heavy rain.
        - Prepare: consider protective actions if you are in an area
          vulnerable to flooding.
        - Act: heed any flood watches and warnings.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter
          currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may
          become swollen and overflow in spots.
        - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in
          usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding
          of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor
          drainage areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds
          become near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and
          bridge closures.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is unfavorable for tornadoes

    - potential threat to life and property: tornadoes not expected
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Plan: tornadoes are not expected. Showers and thunderstorms
          with gusty winds may still occur.
        - Prepare: little to no preparations needed to protect
          against tornadoes at this time. Keep informed of the latest
          tornado situation.
