Flash Flood Emergency issued for several AL counties

Flash Flood Emergency issued for several AL counties

The soggy remnants of Alberto moved toward the nation's interior Tuesday, leaving scattered flooding and downed trees in the wake of the year's first named tropical storm.

The National Hurricane Center said Alberto was forecast to work its way north-northwest through Alabama and into Tennessee and Kentucky before going north through IN, brushing Chicago and heading northeast into MI on Thursday and then Canada with whatever strength it has left.

Alberto's winds continued to slow down throughout Monday, reaching maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour as it made landfall in Laguna Beach, west of Panama City on the northern Gulf Coast, according to the National Hurricane Center. Flash flood watches were in effort for parts of several states from Alabama through Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, the Carolinas and Virginia and West Virginia.

Alabama Power Co. said about 20,000 homes and businesses were without electricity Tuesday, most in the Birmingham area.

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

Sleeping in on weekends could save your life
So if you're someone who gets very little sleep during the week, you just need to sleep in during the weekends to make up for it. People in their late teens and 20s slept on average for seven hours a night during the week but 8.5 hours on days off.

Those areas are expected to get more rain because the eastern side of the remnants of Alberto will bring more moisture to those regions, said Robert Beasley, a weather service meteorologist in Blacksburg, Va.

Hermond was swept up as he tried to help a shop owner who had escaped flood waters with her cat, police said. "Our beaches did good". People who took those supplies will be better prepared as the hurricane season gets its official start on Friday, said county spokeswoman Brandi Whitehurst.

According to the latest forecast update from Ray's Weather Center, 17 days in the month of May have already seen measurable rainfall with more to come throughout the final three days of the month.

Tennant said the roots of the large tree tore loose from ground saturated by a week's worth of rain.
