The storm has been rather disorganized for most of its life over water (thus the "subtropical" classification), but has recently become more tropical in nature.
Alberto was expected to drop as much as 12 inches (30 cm) of rain, slamming an area from MS to western Georgia, the Miami-based hurricane center said.
Bay County emergency management officials held a news briefing Sunday, and said that due to tides and when the storm is expected to hit, any surge isn't a major concern. These remnants will bring tropical rains and possible flooding to some areas, so we will have to keep a close eye on that threat and where it lines up.
In Gulf Shores, Ala., webcams showed beaches starting to fill up as the storm's track shifted slightly east away from the region, but red flags on the beach warned beachgoers to stay out of the rough water.

Over the few days, localized flash flooding from heavy rain is the main threat across the Southeastern U.S. The tropical storm watch along the north-central Gulf Coast has been discontinued. "It has maximum sustained winds of 65 mph, which is about 10 miles shy of being a hurricane".
