LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Leon County Emergency Management crews are on stand by if Alberto strengthens.

According to the Leon County Emergency Management Director, the Emergency Operations Center is monitoring the subtropical storm.

They also continue communicating with state and local officials, but say they have seen only minimal impacts of the storm.

"We've seen somewhere between one in a half to two in a half inches of rain over the past 24 hours. Over the next couple of days as Alberto moves away from the southeast we can still expect to see the winds coming in from the south of the Gulf of Mexico," said Kevin Peters, the Leon County Emergency Management director. "So we do have an enhanced of heavier rain as we continue through the week."

Leon County EOC says we can still see possible flash floods in our area.

Officials warn residents to stay alert for heavy downpour, and if you encounter water on the road, turn around and find another path.
