Three Gulf Coast states are under states of emergency as Subtropical Storm Alberto makes it way north. States of emergency have been declared for Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. In a statement, Florida Governor Rick Scott said, "it is critically important that all Florida counties have every available resource to keep families safe and prepare for the torrential rain and severe flooding this storm will bring." Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant also declared a state of emergency, saying coastal and inland flooding could be a serious problem in the coming days. Alberto is predicted to travel across the eastern Gulf of Mexico tonight and should make landfall Monday night.
