Hurricane Sally: More catastrophic rainfall expected after historic storm slams Alabama, Florida

CA, 17 Sep 2020
Hurricane Sally uprooted trees, flooded streets and cut power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses on Wednesday as it brought what the U.S. National Hurricane Center called "historic and catastrophic" flooding to the Alabama-Florida coast.

The storm is moving slowly, but it's hammering the U.S. Gulf Coast with vicious winds and catastrophic rainfall. It made landfall on Alabama’s Gulf Coast on Wednesday morning as a Category Two hurricane, after winds intensified overnight

Sally, which made landfall early Wednesday near Gulf Shores, Alabama, as a Category 2 storm, was donwgraded in the afternoon to a tropical storm as maximum sustained winds dropped to 70 miles per hour (113 kph).

Some parts of the Gulf Coast had been inundated with more than 18 inches (46 cm) of rain over the previous 24 hours, with more precipitation expected as the storm's winds slow further, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

Jackson Proskow reports on the devastating damage and what's still to come.
