TAMPA, Florida (AP) -- More than 20,000 people along Florida's Gulf Coast were ordered to clear out Monday as Alberto -- the very first tropical storm of the new hurricane season -- unexpectedly picked up steam and threatened to come ashore as a hurricane.

A hurricane warning for the Gulf Coast was posted, with forecasters saying the storm could hit on Tuesday morning.

Gov. Jeb Bush signed a declaration of emergency allowing him to call up the National Guard and put laws against price gouging in place.

Breaking News on CNN at the moment.

Lets all pray this does not give us flashbacks of last summer.

Stay tuned for more breaking news.

Looks pretty nasty.

Could be overreacting to it though, just to be on the safe side. I doubt Jeb wants the same stigma of non reaction that Lousiana got slapped on em for Katrina.

Better to be safe, than sorry!

In the wake of last summer, it will be a long time before any warning goes unnoticed when it comes to this sort.
