Alberto remnants threaten Alabama after two killed in North Carolina

Alberto remnants threaten Alabama after two killed in North Carolina

Forecasters said the subtropical depression swirling near Birmingham could dump as much as 6 inches (15 centimeters) of rain on central Alabama.

"We've had a lot of rain, but we got lucky".

Alabama - 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.

Flash flood watches were in effect for parts of several states from Alabama through Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, the Carolinas, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Two television journalists covering the worsening weather in North Carolina were killed on Monday by a falling tree that struck their vehicle. But given previously soaked ground, the propensity for runoff, and the greater likelihood of heavier downpours developing longer and perhaps lighter rain of longer duration, areas along and east of the Blue Ridge are the focus for the highest risk of potential flash flooding again today.

Alberto was more of a rainstorm than a wind threat, but the National Weather Service said at least one tornado had been confirmed.

Near hurricane-force winds from Alberto dropped to about 30 miles per hour (48 km per hour) as it lost strength while crossing the Gulf of Mexico and making landfall in the U.S. South, the National Weather Service said. Double-red flags along the white sandy beaches kept most people out of the rough waters, and some low-lying areas experienced minor flooding, officials said.

"It's not a good sign, getting hit by a storm before hurricane season", Husar told the Panama City News Herald.

According to the latest forecast update from Ray's Weather Center, 17 days in the month of May have already seen measurable rainfall with more to come throughout the final three days of the month. The men died instantly, their vehicle's engine still running, he said.
