Sep 15, 2020

Hurricane Sally has the Gulf coast on alert for flooding, storm surge, high winds, and up to two feet of rain The system is crawling toward the northern Gulf Coast at just two mph. That pace that's enabling the storm to gather huge amounts of water to eventually dump on land. Forecasters now expect landfall late tonight or early Wednesday near the Alabama-Mississippi state line. Rainfall is increasing in the two states, where some coastal roads have been closed because of flooding. Forecasters say the slow-moving storm will bring record flooding to the region. Governor Kay Ivey is urging residents near Mobile Bay to evacuate if they still can.
