South doused with heavy rains from remnants of Alberto

Numerous outages were caused by trees rooted in soggy soil falling across utility lines.

In Cuba, flooding damaged an oil refinery and caused crude oil to spill into Cienfuegos Bay as the remnants of Alberto continued to drench the island in heavy rain.

Forecasters said what's left of the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season is still capable of causing flash flooding.

Two television journalists covering the worsening weather in North Carolina were killed on Monday by a falling tree that struck their auto.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said the two died due to storm-related conditions.

Central North Carolina is in for a mostly wet rest of the week, but the disturbance called Alberto appears to be favoring a route well to the west, forecasters said Tuesday, May 29, 2018.




Alberto was forecast to weaken to a "remnant low pressure" system by Tuesday evening as it moves into the Tennessee Valley and then the Ohio Valley, the weather service said. There is a chance for showers and even a thunderstorm on Wednesday, but the coverage and intensity are expected to back off a bit around Charlotte as compared to recent days with the mountains likely seeing the most concentrated rain.

Rain and wind will begin subsiding between 6 PM and 8 PM.

Since May 15, the Triad has received about 3 inches of rain as recorded at Piedmont Triad International Airport, said Phil Badgett, a weather service meteorologist in Raleigh.

Hermond was swept up as he tried to help a shop owner who had escaped flood waters with her cat, police said. Anchor Mike McCormick and camera operator Aaron Smeltzer from Greenville, South Carolina's, WYFF News were on Highway 176 when the tree came down after heavy rains saturated the ground, police said.

They had just interviewed Tryon Fire Chief Geoffrey Tennant as they covered storms in North Carolina.
