Sally to Bring Dangerous Surge and Flooding


Hurricane Sally continues to slowly edge toward landfall along the Gulf Coast. The storm is moving northwestward at only about 2 mph.

This very slow movement could potentially lead to historic flooding along parts of the northern Gulf Coast. Life-threatening storm surge is also likely.

Current warnings for Hurricane Sally are as follows:
A Storm Surge Warning is in effect for…
* Mouth of the Mississippi River to the Okaloosa/Walton County Line
* Mobile Bay

A Hurricane Warning is in effect for…
* East of Bay St. Louis to Navarre Florida

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for…
* East of Navarre Florida to Indian Pass Florida
* Bay St. Louis westward to Grand Isle Louisiana


Sally is expected to make landfall along the Gulf Coast sometime late tonight or tomorrow morning.

A tornado watch is in effect for parts of Alabama and the Florida panhandle today. Tornadoes will be possible as Sally continues to edge closer to shore.
