With subtropical storm Alberto headed toward the Coast, we are preparing to respond. This morning, I signed a proclamation declaring a state of emergency and an order making the National Guard and other state resources available should they become necessary. pic.twitter.com/AP8ckJ8exA— Phil Bryant (@PhilBryantMS) May 26, 2018
