WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - As Subtropical Storm Alberto is approaching Florida's shores, WTXL's Karah Bailey visited Wakulla County to see the conditions there.

She was there early Monday morning just before dawn.

On Sunday, WTXL's cameras recorded heavy bands of rain washing on shore along with downpours, gusts of stronger winds and palm trees swaying but not quite bending the way they do during tropical storm force winds.

WTXL spoke with local residents who saw the change in weather for themselves at the beach.

One such person was Miranda Taylor, who lives in Sopchoppy. "Hopefully it doesn't get too terribly bad, but if it does, we'll just ride it out," she said.

The Wakulla County emergency management director says two to four feet of storm surge are expected through Monday.
