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

Tropical Storm Alberto is nearing landfall along the Mexico coast
early this morning. All tropical storm watches have been cancelled for
the Texas coast as wind speeds have decreased and will continue to
decrease.

Showers and thunderstorms will continue to impact the southern Coastal
Bend and west across South Texas this morning with a few brief
tropical tornadoes still possible. Additional rainfall for most of the
area will be an inch or less, though a few bands of heavier convection
are still noted and could produce another inch or two of rain.

Coastal flooding will persist along the coast today into tomorrow for
gulf facing areas, and will likely persist longer along the bays as
water will take some time to get back to normal. Expect
inundation of up to 3 feet to continue in these areas.

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

* SURGE:
Little to no additional surge impacts expected.

* FLOODING RAIN:
Additional impacts from flooding rain are still a concern across
South Texas. Remain well guarded against locally hazardous flood
waters having further impacts of limited potential.

* TORNADOES:
Additional impacts from tornadoes are still a concern across South
Texas. Remain well braced against tornado event having further
limited impact potential.

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

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:

Be alert for flooded roads which could be compromised or littered
with debris. Avoid travel until water levels subside and roads have
been cleared. Do not drive through places where flood waters cover
the road. Turn around, don't drown!

Have multiple ways to receive Tornado Warnings if issued. Consider
nearby shelter options as you move about. Be ready to shelter quickly.
