Hurricane Statement
Issued: 4:46 PM CDT Oct. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

This product covers portions of southwest Alabama... northwest Florida... south
central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.

**Disturbance over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico now moving
north-northeastward with gale-force winds**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Baldwin central,
      Baldwin coastal, Escambia coastal, Escambia inland, Mobile
      central, Mobile coastal, Okaloosa coastal, Okaloosa inland,
      Santa Rosa coastal, and Santa Rosa inland

* storm information:
    - about 720 miles southwest of Pensacola FL or about 740 miles
      southwest of Destin FL
    - 22.9n 95.2w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement north-northeast or 20 degrees at 9 mph

Situation overview
------------------

At 4:00 PM CDT, potential tropical cyclone sixteen will move
northeast across the western Gulf of Mexico toward the north central
Gulf tonight and Friday. Maximum sustained winds along the coastal
sections of the western Florida Panhandle Friday night into Saturday
morning are expected to range from 30-45 mph with gusts of 50 to 60
mph. Maximum sustained winds along the coastal sections of Alabama
are expected to be in the 25-40 mph with gusts of 40 to 50 mph.

Heavy rainfall will also be possible along and east of I-65 with
rainfall totals forecast between 2 and 4 inches, with higher amounts
of 4 to 6 inches possible.

A coastal flood advisory is in effect with inundation of 1 to 2 feet
expected at the time of high tide on both early Friday and Saturday
mornings. A high surf advisory also in effect with breaker heights up
to 5 to 7 feet developing tomorrow afternoon along area beaches and
enduring into early Saturday afternoon.

Prepare now for damaging winds, minor coastal flooding, strong rip
currents and heavy rainfall across locations in the tropical storm
areas.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
the coastal sections of southwest Alabama and the western Florida
Panhandle. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

* Flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts along and east of I-65. Potential impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

* Other coastal hazards:
high surf with breaker heights up to 5 to 7 feet developing tomorrow
afternoon along area beaches will continue into early Saturday
afternoon. This pounding surf will create minor coastal flooding with
inundation of 1 to 2 feet expected at the time of high tide on both
early Friday and Saturday mornings. Minor beach erosion will also
occur through the period. There is a high risk of rip currents
through Sunday morning due to increasing swell height and developing
strong easterly winds.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* other preparedness information:
if in a place that is vulnerable to high wind, such as near large
trees, a manufactured home, upper floors of a high-rise building, or
on a boat, consider moving to a safer shelter before the onset of
strong winds or flooding.

Closely monitor weather.Gov, NOAA Weather Radio or local news outlets
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather
warnings.

Coastal Flood Advisory, High Surf Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 6:43 PM CDT Oct. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 7 am CDT
Saturday...
... High surf advisory remains in effect until 7 PM CDT Saturday...
... High rip current risk remains in effect through Sunday
morning...

* coastal flooding... inundation 1 to 2 feet at the time of high
tide on both early Friday and Saturday mornings. Especially
Friday night and early Saturday morning.

* Waves and surf... breaker heights up to 5 to 7 feet developing
tomorrow afternoon along area beaches and enduring into early
Saturday afternoon.

* Where... Dauphin Island Alabama east to Destin Florida.

* Impacts... frequent life-threatening rip currents are expected.
The surf is dangerous for all levels of swimmers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

There is a high risk of rip currents. Rip currents are life-
threatening to anyone entering the surf. Swim near a lifeguard.
If caught in a rip current remain calm. Don't fight the current.
Swim in a direction following the shoreline. If unable to
escape, face the shore and call or wave for help. If tired,
float or tread water until out of the rip current.

          underway. Prepare for limited wind damage.
        - Act: act now to complete preparations before the wind
          becomes hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: limited

          uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees
          are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown
          over.
        - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within
          urban or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving
          conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways.

          become unsafe.
        - Act: leave immediately if evacuation orders are given for
          your area.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
          immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas
          farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
        - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become
          overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous
          in places where surge water covers the Road.

          usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding
          of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor
          drainage areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds
