    Hancock, Harrison, Jackson, Lower Plaquemines, Lower St.
    Bernard, Orleans, and Upper St. Bernard

    miles south-southeast of Gulfport MS
    - 21.6N 84.9W
    - Storm Intensity 40 mph
    - Movement North or 10 degrees at 10 mph

    SITUATION OVERVIEW
    ------------------

    OVERVIEW...At 1000 AM CDT, Sub-Tropical Storm Alberto was moving
    north at 10 mph near the western tip of Cuba. The system is expected
    to move into the Gulf of Mexico by this afternoon and then turn to the
    north- northwest toward the central Gulf coast by tomorrow. Tropical
    storm impacts should begin to be felt across portions of Southeast
    Louisiana mainly east of Interstate 55 and across coastal Mississippi
    by Sunday night.

    The primary impact will be heavy rainfall that could produce inland
    flooding. Rainfall should range from 2 to 4 inches across southeast
    Louisiana east of Interstate 55 to 4 to 6 inches across coastal
    Mississippi. Secondary impacts will be storm surge and tropical storm
    force winds. Storm surge should range from 1 to 3 feet along the
    shores of Lake Pontchartrain to 2 to 4 feet along the Mississippi
    coast and east facing shores of southeast Louisiana outside of the
    hurricane protection system. Tropical storm force winds are most
    likely to be felt along portions of the Mississippi coast.

    POTENTIAL IMPACTS
    -----------------

    FLOODING RAIN:
    Prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
    impacts across portions of coastal Mississippi from Gulfport to the
    Mississippi and Alabama state line. 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.

    Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
    limited impacts across portions of coastal Mississippi west of Gulfport
    and across portions of Southeast Louisiana mainly to the east of
    Interstate 55.

    SURGE:
    Prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
    impacts across coastal Mississippi and east facing shores of
    Southeast Louisiana outside of the hurricane protection system
    between the mouth of the Mississippi River and the Rigolets. 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.

    Also, prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited
    impacts along the shores of Lake Pontchartrain.

    Elsewhere across Southeast Louisiana and South Mississippi, little to
    no impact is anticipated.

    WIND:
    Prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
    Southeast Louisiana mainly east of Interstate 55 and 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.

    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.

    When securing your property, outside preparations should be concluded
    as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
    strong gusty winds or flooding can cause certain preparedness
    activities to become unsafe.

    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.

    Service in New Orleans LA around 2 PM CDT, or sooner if conditions
    warrant.

    Additional Flash Flood Watches may be extended in area and time
    at a later time throughout the weekend as the situation unfolds.

    You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
    should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
