PORTIONS OF THE PANHANDLE**

NEW INFORMATION
---------------

- The Tropical Storm Watch has been upgraded to a Tropical Storm
Warning for Calhoun, Holmes, North Walton, and Washington
- A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for Coastal Dixie,
Coastal Taylor, and Inland Franklin

* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
- A Tropical Storm Warning and Storm Surge Watch are in effect

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

After moving to the east overnight, Alberto is now moving northward
toward the Florida Big Bend/eastern Panhandle area. As a result of the
eastward shift in track overnight, Tropical Storm Warnings have been
extended eastward to cover the entire Florida Gulf Coast, as well as
inland portions of the Florida Panhandle. Its forward speed and more
eastward track will mitigate the magnitude of intensification today as
the storm approached the Gulf Coast. As a result, the threats posed to
the Tri-State region remain unchanged. The greatest threat is for heavy
rain and flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch has been issued starting
early Sunday morning for the Panhandle and Big Bend, southeast Alabama,
and extreme southwest Georgia. Expected rain amounts of 4 to 8" with
isolated higher amounts are possible in this area. Coastal flooding is
possible across the entire Big Bend and Panhandle coast, with 2 to 4
feet of inundation possible. The greatest threat for storm surge
impacts will be across the western Big Bend and mouth of Apalachee Bay
on Sunday, with a continuing but lesser threat on Monday. Across the
Panhandle, the threat for storm surge will peak on Monday. The threat
for tropical storm force winds continues to increase across across the
Florida Panhandle and Big Bend, and inland across portions of southeast
Alabama and southwestern Georgia. Isolated tornadoes remain possible
across the entire Tri- State region both Sunday and Monday.

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

* FLOODING RAIN:
Protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across the eastern Panhandle of Florida and southeast Alabama.
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,
arroyos, 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.

Protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across the Big Bend of Florida and southwest Georgia.

* SURGE:
Protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across Franklin and Wakulla counties. 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, protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts across the eastern Big Bend and Panhandle of Florida.

Elsewhere across EASTERN FLORIDA PANHANDLE...FLORIDA BIG
BEND...SOUTHEASTERN ALABAMA AND SOUTHWESTERN GEORGIA, little to no
impact is anticipated.

* WIND:
Protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across EASTERN FLORIDA PANHANDLE...FLORIDA BIG BEND...SOUTHEASTERN
ALABAMA AND SOUTHWESTERN GEORGIA. Potential impacts include:
- Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
objects become dangerous projectiles.
- Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
fences and roadway signs blown over.
- Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
routes impassable.
- Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
in areas with above ground lines.

* TORNADOES:
Protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across EASTERN FLORIDA PANHANDLE...FLORIDA BIG BEND...SOUTHEASTERN
ALABAMA AND SOUTHWESTERN GEORGIA. Potential impacts include:
- The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
of emergency plans during tropical events.
- A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
and communications disruptions.
- Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
pulled from moorings.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:

Listen to local official for recommended preparedness actions,
including possible evacuation. If ordered to evacuate, do so
immediately.

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:

Now is the time to complete all preparations to protect life and
property in accordance with your emergency plan. Ensure you are in a
safe location before the onset of strong winds or possible flooding.
