have seen sub-tropical storm Alberto form in the Caribbean and
track northward into the U.S. Gulf Coast prior to official hurricane
season start. This storm brought with it heavy rains to the Eastern
U.S. A region already reeling from historic flooding. One locked
beneath a seemingly never-ending Matrix-esque pall of dark clouds.
Alberto is one of many recent early season storms. And it may be a
harbinger of more intense storms to follow.
Alberto tracking toward Lake Michigan yesterday. Alberto, as with
many recent storms, maintained strength over land while dumping heavy
rainfall. While not comparable to Harvey’s all-time record
inundation, Alberto is contributing to very severe rainfall over the
Eastern U.S. during late spring of 2018. Image source: University
