WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Meteorologist Valerie Mills followed Tropical Storm Alberto from Panacea all day Sunday to see how weather is affecting the coastal areas.
Some heavy bands of rain washed onshore Sunday afternoon, but things would mostly start to lighten up.
Overall, it wasn't too bad of a day other than downpours and gusts of stronger winds at times.
Palm trees were swaying, but they weren't bending the way they do during tropical storm force winds.
Many Wakulla County locals came to check out the weather on the beach.
"We came out here to see the storm surge on the ocean and to see what it looks like. The calm before the storm," said Sopchoppy resident Miranda Taylor. "So far, it's not too bad. Hopefully it doesn't get too terribly bad, but if it does, we'll just ride it out."
The Wakulla County Emergency Management Director says two to four feet of storm surges are expected through Monday.
They haven't called for the coastal areas to evacuate, but they say they are keeping a close eye on the storm in case anything changes.
