Body found in Maryland river as Alberto's remnants threaten Alabama

  • A flood watch is expected for South Florida on Saturday morning as a result of Subtropical Storm Alberto

USA forecasters said rain could still cause unsafe flash floods in the coming days in northern Alabama and large areas of Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolinas.

In Maryland, searchers on Monday found the body of a man swept away when a flash flood triggered by a separate storm tore through the main street of a historic town.

Precipitation totals from the National Weather Service show that Boone has received 9.44 inches of rain this month and will most likely reach double-digit rainfall amounts for the month after this storm rolls through.

The soggy remnants of Alberto moved toward the nation's interior Tuesday, leaving scattered flooding and downed trees in the wake of the year's first named tropical storm. About half of Alabama's 67 counties were under a flash flood watch.

With heavily saturated ground and another one to three inches of rain expected Tuesday and Wednesday, the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Watauga, Ashe, Alleghany, and Wilkes counties through Wednesday morning and for Avery and Caldwell counties until Thursday morning.

Philip Roth , a prize-winning novelist and fearless narrator of sex, death, assimilation and fate, has died. Gunn shared a photo of the cover of Roth's book The Counterlife on Twitter, writing: "RIP Philip Roth".

Between 2 and 6 inches (10-15 centimeters) of rain could soak Alabama and western Georgia on Tuesday, and isolated deluges of 12 inches (30 centimeters) also are possible as the system heads into the Tennessee Valley on its way to the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region.

As a subtropical storm, Alberto had a less defined and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds were found farther from its center. The flooding was the second time Ellicott City had been devastated by high water in two years. WYFF-TV of Greenville, South Carolina, said news anchor Mike McCormick and photojournalist Aaron Smeltzer were killed.

After Alberto's passage, Royal Dutch Shell Plc was sending workers back to the eastern Gulf of Mexico and Chevron Corp restored some production on Monday.

Among other things, it has left 25,000 people in Alabama without power.
