On May 28, Tropical Storm Alberto developed in the central Gulf of Mexico. By May 30, the storm had begun an interaction with an extratropical low, creatting a dry line in the process, which led to a significant tornado outbreak over the next day or so. The first tornadoes were of relatively weak intensity, but as Alberto became extratropical, it caused a more significant tornado outbreak, with 4 EF4s, and 2 EF5 tornadoes forming during the event. As the event progressed, it led to several deaths and damages alongthe way, before the parent system was absorbed into another low, effectively dispersing the energy, thus ending the outbreak as a result.
