JUNE 13, 2006 -- Tropical Storm Alberto made landfall in Florida around noon on Tuesday. As Alberto continues its path across the Southeast it's bringing some much needed rain to the Carolina coast and giving residents a chance to practice for the next big storm.

In Carolina Beach, town officials tested their emergency operations center, running through scenarios that will help them stay ahead of even stronger storms.

Carolina Beach officials will hold a meeting for hurricane volunteers at 6:00p.m. Wednesday in the police training room.
