Alberto makes landfall in northwest Florida

Por Damian

The scourge of the storms went ahead this year, but South Florida got rid of the first attack. The subtropical storm Alberto, the first named in this year´s season, made landfall on Monday afternoon in northwest Florida, the National Hurricane Center (CNH) reported. Find out next more about the details.

Alberto entered Laguna Beach, about 15 miles northwest of Panama City, with sustained winds of 45 miles per hour with higher gusts. According to the evening newsletter of the CNH, the atmospheric phenomenon is expected to deposit large amounts of rain that could lead to flash floods in its advance on land in different Floridian localities.

Meanwhile, although the Memorial Day holiday shone in South Florida because of its gray sky, the National Weather Service canceled the flood warning that was looming over this area shortly after noon, although it did not discount the risk of heavy downpours.

According to meteorologists, the greatest dangers of Alberto, whose speed of translation towards the north is of 9 miles per hour, are the downpours and the flash floods. There is also a hurricane storm warning. "Storm surge surveillance means that there is the possibility of life-threatening floods, due to an increase in water levels moving inland from the coasts, through the indicated areas", the meteorologists said in the report.

According to the trajectory pattern, the system is expected to go through Alabama tonight or early Tuesday and then move to the Tennessee Valley and the Ohio Valley, reaching the Great Lakes region on Wednesday and Thursday.

Experts predict that Alberto will weaken as he enters the land and will degrade to a subtropical depression. A low-pressure remnant will dissipate on Tuesday afternoon. For the time being, there is still a surveillance of storm surge from the Aucilla River to Mexico Beach, and a tropical storm warning from the Aucilla River to the border between Florida and Alabama.

In retrospective, it was predicted that Alberto would touch earth ground in hours of the afternoon of Monday, while it advanced slowly from the south to reason of 8 mph. The storm has weakened slightly, and at present its sustained winds that can reach 50 miles per hour (mph), a slight decrease from the 60 mph it had in the 11 a.m.
