Subtropical storm Alberto claims the lives of two NC journalists

Storm Team 11 Forecast: Rain And A Few Storms Possible Tomorrow - Watching Flooding Risk

National Weather Service meteorologist Greg DeVoir said Philadelphia will see about the same amount, while Pittsburgh and areas out to the west could see a little more rain. Life-threatening flash flooding is being reported along the Catawba River and its tributaries there.

McDowell County Emergency Management confirmed 200 people from campgrounds and residential communities near the dam and lake were at shelters, and there may be more later since water levels were expected to rise. Sprayberry said state and rescue officials as well as structural collapse teams have been deployed in the area.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue for the next several days, continuing the threat of flash flooding across the mountains. But given previously soaked ground, the propensity for runoff, and the greater likelihood of heavier downpours developing longer and perhaps lighter rain of longer duration, areas along and east of the Blue Ridge are the focus for the highest risk of potential flash flooding again today. South of Ellicott, in Albemarle County, Virginia, a search was underway for a couple who was swept away by flood waters Wednesday night, WVIR reported.

"Please remain alert for additional updates, as additional rainfall is expected this afternoon", said McDowell County EMS.

Cooper said he will be traveling to western North Carolina on Thursday to visit counties affected by the storms.

The deaths are the legacy of a storm named Alberto, which made landfall earlier this week as a subtropical storm and has since drenched the states in its path.

Shortly before 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, a mudslide closed both directions of Interstate 40 in McDowell County, according to McDowell County Emergency Management.

Schools in the county were closed due to poor road conditions.

Asheville, N.C., has picked up a whopping 14.4 inches of rain in May, making it the city's wettest month since record-keeping began there in 1869, AccuWeather said.

At least five mudslides were reported in Henderson County blocking roads near the towns of Bat Cave and Hendersonville. These include Burnettes Landing, Lake James Landing (Paddy's Creek), State Park, and Mystic Landing.

Smeltzer joined WYFF earlier this year, but also worked for WSPA for many years.

On Tuesday, the storm fizzled into a subtropical depression as it rolled into Alabama but forecasters warned of potentially risky flash floods even as winds dropped to 30 miles per hour (48 km per hour).
