South Ala. Gets Rain From Claudette Remannts

Andalusia, AL – South Alabama is getting hit with waves of rain but little else from the remnants of Tropical Storm Claudette.

The storm spread showers across south Alabama early Monday as it moved into the state after coming ashore in the Florida Panhandle. The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for the region.

The rainfall was heaviest in Covington County, but emergency management director Susan Carpenter said there weren't any problems early with flooding or high winds.

Conditions could get worse later in the day. The National Weather Service says some areas could get 5 inches of rain or more, bringing with it the risk of flooding. Forecasters say there's also a chance of isolated, weak tornadoes.
