Hurricane Sally, September 2020

16 Sep 2020


Hurricane Sally was a Category 2 storm when it made landfall on Wednesday, September 16, near Gulf Shores, Alabama, about 30 miles from Pensacola, Florida. The slow-moving storm brought damaging storm surge and flooding to coastal Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle. Officials reported over 30 inches of rainfall in just 4 hours in Pensacola. This heavy rainfall caused what the National Hurricane Center declared “catastrophic and life-threatening” flooding to the area. Sally is now over South Carolina and is still a flood threat, particularly from riverine flooding. The storm is expected to move out over the Atlantic Ocean within 24 hours.
