Category 2 Hurricane Sally slams into Alabama and Florida. What we know.
Hurricane Sally slowly slams southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle as a Category 2, prompting water rescues, power outages, dropping trees and debris, and catastrophic flooding.
The National Weather Service in Mobile reports that a flash flood emergency situation has been created in southeastern Baldwin County, Alabama and south central Escambia County, Florida.
In addition to the flooding in Pensacola, there were also sounds of transformers exploding and metal scraping along the ground — debris from torn roofs. Power has been knocked out for more than 500,000 customers in Alabama and Florida alone, utility tracker PowerOutage.us reported.
