FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. -- Rain and strong rip currents from Tropical Storm Alberto are hitting the First Coast, from Brunswick to Jacksonville Beach.

The National Weather Service issued a weather statement Sunday for our coastal counties, warning of light to moderate rainfall through Sunday night as rain bands from Alberto move south.

Tropical Storm Alberto will not pose a significant threat to our coastal counties, aside from rain and hazardous beach conditions.
