Coastal Alabama is drying out and cleaning up after a near miss from what was briefly Hurricane Barry.
The storm system moved farther west than forecasters expected, making landfall on Louisiana's central coast Saturday morning. But the storm still dumped a tremendous amount of rain on Alabama's coast. The towns of Fairhope and Daphne reported as much as 7 inches of rainfall over the weekend.
The Baldwin County Health Department says those heavy rains on the Eastern Short of Mobile Bay caused up to $200,000 of sewage to overflow into local creeks feeding into the bay.
