Hurricane Sally hit the Gulf Shores as a Category 2 storm with winds hitting 105 mph. The Alabama coast is receiving large downpours of rain and storm surges are covering the beaches.

The National Hurricane Center said this will result in dangerous, possibly historic flooding from the Florida Panhandle to Mississippi as well as inland on the coast within the upcoming days.

 

Alabama has ranked last in response to the 2020 US census. 

Numbers recorded from the U.S. Census show that Alabama has had the lowest percentage of households responding out of any other state in the country.
