Sally is now a Tropical Storm

Tropical Storm Sally continues to bring life-threatening Flash Flooding to the Deep South.

Sally is now a Tropical Storm with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph. Moving northeast at 7 mph.

Bridges destroyed, trees on homes, and cars underwater – just a small idea of the reality across the northern Gulf Coast. Sally has decreased in strength, but the flash flooding threat continues for much of the southeast. Life-threatening flooding is expected to push inland into southeastern Alabama overnight as Tropical Storm Sally moves northeast.

Flash Flood Watches extend from Alabama to eastern Virginia. The WCCB has a Flash Flood Watch in place from 8 AM Thursday to 8 AM Friday. Stay weather aware and be sure you have multiple ways to receive warnings and watches.
