Tropical Storm Alberto was a weak tropical storm that briefly reached 60 knot intensity prior to making landfall near Adams Beach, Florida on June 13. After landfall, Alberto weakened rapidly as it traveled over the Florida Panhandle and Georgia. Alberto became extratropical over South Carolina as it became absorbed by a cold front on June 14.

The remnants of Alberto caused heavy rains throughout Central and Coastal South Carolina. Seven tornados were reported and only caused damage to a few roofs, felling several trees and downing power lines in Beaufort and Charleston Counties.
