Sally socks and soaks Alabama Gulf Coast, saturating other parts of the state


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Hurricane Sally walloped the Alabama Gulf Coast, toppling massive ancient trees, tossing huge boats across roadways, putting communities underwater and even sending a giant alligator into a neighborhood.

While Tropical Storm Sally is now soaking other parts of Alabama, the storm has left lingering problems to be dealt with in Mobile and Baldwin counties.

As of 9 p.m., Alabama Power reported statewide outages of 160,600 with the vast majority (134,000) in the Mobile area. Sustained winds continue to be one of the challenges, particularly in the Mobile area, as crews work to restore power. The company is still in the process of assessing damage to infrastructure even while making progress in restoring service.

The winds, rains and storm surge caused widespread flooding and massive property damage.

Dauphin Island Sea Lab was also damaged.

Sally is now soaking other parts of Alabama, causing flash flooding.

Gov. Kay Ivey and local officials are urging the public to remain off roads and out of areas affected by the storm. Ivey has called a news conference for 10 a.m. Thursday. Some cities have implemented curfews.
