Weakened but still wet, Alberto moves inland

  • Alberto will continue to lift north today bringing locally heavy rain and a low threat for tornadoes to east central Florida

Among other things, it has left 25,000 people in Alabama without power.

Subtropical Storm Alberto kept a tight circulation and spun pretty far west, so we did not get much banding effects from it here in Southwest Virginia on Tuesday.

Although Alberto, the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, was downgraded to a subtropical depression soon after it made landfall on Monday, its affects have continued to be felt, even at the fringes of the system.

Alberto was more of a rainstorm than a wind threat, but the National Weather Service said at least one tornado had been confirmed. State-owned TV showed authorities using barriers Tuesday to try to contain the spill from the Cienfuegos refinery in central Cuba about 150 miles (240 kilometers) southeast of Havana.

"Two journalists working to keep the public informed about this storm have tragically lost their lives, and we mourn with their families, friends and colleagues", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said in a statement. It could deliver up to 6 inches of rain in some areas as it moves toward lower MI by Wednesday evening, officials said. There is a chance for showers and even a thunderstorm on Wednesday, but the coverage and intensity are expected to back off a bit around Charlotte as compared to recent days with the mountains likely seeing the most concentrated rain.

Meghan Markle is now taking lessons in being a Royal
Perry added that she thought the Duchess of Cambridge's dress "won", but said she was still supportive of Markle and Harry's nuptials.

By late Tuesday, Alberto's center was moving over western Kentucky.

The National Weather Service in Raleigh said computer models were "in a relatively good agreement" that the weather will dry out a bit overnight Wednesday and into Thursday morning, but then rains return.

The risk of flooding is not as significant in Forsyth and Guilford counties, and in areas east and south of the Triad, Adkins said. WYFF-TV of Greenville, South Carolina, said news anchor Mike McCormick and photojournalist Aaron Smeltzer were killed.

Tennant said the roots of the large tree tore loose from ground saturated by a week's worth of rain.
