As of 10am GMT the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida said Storm Alberto was holding 65 miles per hour (104kph) winds and is expected to make landfall later today.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect from Anclote River to the Mississippi/Alabama border.

Forecasters say heavy rains from Subtropical Storm Alberto could cause flooding across most of SC.

At 700 AM CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Subtropical Storm Alberto was located near latitude 29.0 North, longitude 86.0 West. Alberto is moving northward near 6 miles per hour (9 km/h). Flooding potential will increase across this region early next week as Alberto is forecast to slow down after it moves inland.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is moving closer to the U.S. Gulf Coast, bringing with it heavy rain and the threat of flooding.

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. Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant and Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey declared states of emergency.

Subtropical Storm Albert has gained strength as it approaches the northern Gulf Coast.

Parts of the United States have declared states of emergency in preparation for Alberto, a severe weather pattern expected to morph into a tropical storm by the time it makes landfall.

The Hurricane Center says a tropical storm warning is in effect from the Suwannee River in Florida to the Mississippi-Alabama state line.

The storm is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 15 inches with isolated totals of 25 inches across the western Cuba. Just because it's sunny after the storm passes, Medlin said, there's still a risk for swimmers.

On the forecast track, the center of Alberto will move over the northern Gulf of Mexico Sunday night and approach the northern Gulf Coast in the warning area on Monday.

Subtropical Storm Alberto continues spinning out at sea, but this tropical system's outer rainbands have been impacting Middle Georgia since Sunday afternoon. And in the Tampa Bay area on the central Gulf Coast, cities offered sandbags for homeowners anxious about floods.

Parts of the panhandle, most of Alabama and western Georgia can expect four to six inches of rain.

Storms in the Gulf are closely watched because 5 percent of USA natural gas and 17 percent of crude-oil production comes out of the region, according to the Energy Information Administration. Locally heavy rain can be expected throughout Memorial Day. "We're talking eight to 12 inches of rain this weekend, and storm surges on the Gulf Coast".

Its center passed parallel of Apalachicola and was about 30 miles south-southwest of Panama City, the NHC said.

Governors in Alabama and MS also declared states of emergency on Saturday.
