* COASTAL FLOODING...Subtropical Storm Alberto will be moving
  north across the Eastern Gulf on Sunday with water levels
  increasing on its wake across the Southwest Florida coast. Water
  levels could rise as high as 1.5-2.0 ft above mean higher high
  water right along the coast. Along with that, rip current risk

  afternoon sunday around the times of high tide along the coast.
  For rip currents: Sunday through Monday.

* IMPACTS...Potential for minor coastal flooding of vulnerable
  locations along the Collier and Mainland Monroe coasts on
  Sunday. Strong rip currents will be hazardous for those in the
  surf zone along the Gulf Beaches.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the
sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins, jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
signs.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don`t swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help.
