Thousands evacuate as Storm Alberto churns toward FloridaThousands of Florida residents evacuated their homes on Sunday as Subtropical Storm Alberto drove north through the Gulf of Mexico with forecasters saying it could bring "life-threatening inundation" to southern coastal states. The storm was about 120 miles (190 kms) south of Apalachicola, Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico coast as of 4 p.m. EDT (2000 GMT) and was expected to make landfall along the Florida Panhandle on Monday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. Alberto, the first named Atlantic storm of 2018 which spun up days before the formal start of the hurricane season, is forecast to pack maximum sustained winds near 50 mph (85 kph) and dump as much as 12 inches (30 cm) of rain, slamming an area from Mississippi to western Georgia, it said.

Pele oversees "any and all volcanic phenomenon: lava flow, steam, fumes, earthquakes," says Bobby Camara, a retired Park Ranger at the vast Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the biggest tourist attraction on Hawaii's Big Island.
