Alberto will continue to impact Middle Georgia through the middle of the week, bringing more heavy rainfall to the area.

The hurricane centre said Sunday that a tropical storm warning was in effect from Bonita Beach, Fla., to the Mississippi-Alabama border.

Federal officials with the Gulf Islands National Seashore - a group of barrier islands in the Gulf of Mexico - say that ahead of Alberto's arrival, "All Florida areas remain closed, including Hwy".

Florida Governor Rick Scott, who issued a state of emergency on Saturday in all of the state's 67 counties, said on Sunday that the Florida National Guard has 5,500 guard members ready to be deployed if needed.

The Mississippi governor Phil Bryant also declared a state of emergency as the state is in the storm's current path.

The governors of Florida, Alabama and MS all declared states of emergency ahead of the storm. In addition, Ivey called upon the Alabama National Guard's High Water Evacuation Team to support the southern parts of the state.

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

Alberto is scheduled to make landfall on the Florida Panhandle early Monday, and the three states likely to bear the brunt of the storm have begun preparing states of emergency.

Flooding was possible in Florida's Miami-Dade and Monroe counties after weeks of rain, with tornadoes possible Saturday and Sunday and rip currents expected on both coasts, forecasters said.

A storm surge watch means life-threatening conditions are possible from rising water moving inland from the coast.

Brief tornadoes are possible from northern Florida into central and southern Georgia, southern SC and southeastern Alabama.

There also is a potential for storms and rain throughout the rest of the week, Corless said.

"If you are in an area under a storm surge watch or warning and have not heard whether or not you should evacuate, contact your local emergency management and leave today according to their instructions", Knabb said.

"I strongly encourage everyone to be safe and stay informed", Mayor LaToya Cantrell said in a statement. It is still a subtropical storm, meaning that it does not have all of the characteristics of a purely tropical system and is more of a hybrid cyclone.

The storm spun up days before the formal June 1 start of the hurricane season. The season is likely to be "near or above normal", according to the hurricane center.
