Florida gov. declares state of emergency ahead of Subtropical Storm Alberto

Florida gov. declares state of emergency ahead of Subtropical Storm Alberto

Rick Scott declared a state of emergency Saturday for all 67 counties ahead of Subtropical Storm Alberto.

He said in a tweet he made the declaration "to ensure our state has the resources they need to keep their families safe and prepare for the torrential rain and severe flooding Subtropical Storm Alberto will bring."

The storm, moving slowly through the Caribbean Sea, is threatening to bring heavy rainfall, mudslides, and flash floods to parts of Mexico, Cuba, Florida and the U.S. Gulf Coast this weekend.

Both countries issued tropical storm watches for portions of their coastlines, with rain totals in some isolated areas of up to 25 inches.

U.S. forecasters followed suit by issuing a tropical storm watch for parts of the Gulf Coast from the Florida Panhandle southwest of Tallahassee to the New Orleans metropolitan area.
