USA states declare emergency ahead of subtropical storm

Forecasters warned heavy rain, flash flooding and unsafe surf posed the biggest threats as Alberto's ragged core made landfall near Laguna Beach in the Florida Panhandle. Storm watches and warnings were discontinued for coastal regions, but those inland remained in effect.

Alberto is expected to drop 2 to 6 inches of rain through Thursday across much of the Southeast, with 12 inches possible in isolated areas.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Wake, Chatham, Nash and Johnston counties and points south through 8 a.m. Tuesday.

The winds decreased to 40 miles per hour by Monday night, when the storm was moving north at close to 10 miles per hour.

Temperatures are expected to be in the low to mid 80s during the day and the mid 70s at night this week and the wind should be less than 15 miles per hour but as low as 7 miles per hour on Wednesday. Florida governor Rick Scott issued a declaration for all 67 counties in his state and MS governor Phil Bryant authorised the use of the National Guard, his office said.

As of Tuesday, just three days before the official start of hurricane season, no other storms were brewing in the Gulf or the Atlantic maps from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration showed.
