Body found in Maryland river as Alberto's remnants threaten Alabama

Hurricane season 2018 Tropical season Alberto damage to cost 1 billion

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.

Flash flood warnings have been issued for several other western counties in North Carolina, with the NWS cautioning that resulting landslides and rapidly rising waterways have created a life-threatening situation.

Many Northwestern counties have received 6 to 7 inches of rain, and locally heavier amounts, Badgett said.

Subtropical storm Alberto rolled ashore Monday afternoon in the Florida Panhandle and then weakened overnight to a depression.

"The Tri-State was doused with 1-2" ahead of Alberto on Tuesday, but the main even promises to bring even more rain on Wednesday morning.

By Tuesday morning, beachcombers had returned to the white sands of the Northern Gulf.

In Cuba, flooding damaged an oil refinery in central Cuba and caused crude oil to spill into Cienfuegos Bay as the remnants of Alberto continued to drench the island in heavy rain.

Two television journalists covering the worsening weather in North Carolina were killed on Monday by a falling tree that struck their vehicle.

The large tree that crushed the TV news vehicle Monday afternoon near Tryon, North Carolina, killed news anchor Mike McCormick and photojournalist Aaron Smeltzer of WYFF-TV of Greenville, South Carolina, the station said.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said the two died due to storm-related conditions.

The flash flood emergency impacted Perry, Bibb, Chilton, Greene and Hale counties, according to the National Weather Service. Emergency management also reported additional heavy rain moving into the warned area causing significant impacts county wide.

Since May 15, the Triad has received about 3 inches of rain as recorded at Piedmont Triad International Airport, said Phil Badgett, a weather service meteorologist in Raleigh.

The weather service said its meteorologists confirmed a weak tornado with maximum winds of 85 miles per hour (147 kph) hit an area around Cameron, South Carolina, on Monday afternoon.
