Hurricane Sally makes landfall, bringing torrential rain, storm surge and historic flooding

Hurricane Sally made landfall early Wednesday morning near Gulf Shores, Alabama, bringing with her torrential rain, significant storm surge, and historic flooding.

Parts of the Pensacola Bay Bridge have collapsed, and many across the region have lost power.

A Hurricane Warning is in effect from the Mississippi/Alabama border to the Okaloosa/Walton County line, Florida.

A Storm Surge Warning is in effect from Dauphin Island, Alabama to the Walton/Bay County Line, Florida.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect from East of the Okaloosa/Walton County line, Florida, to Indian Pass, Florida, and from the MS/AL border to the Mouth of the Pearl River.

West of Pensacola, Hurricane Sally has already dumped 20 inches of rain, and more is expected. Swells from Sally will continue to affect the coast from the Florida Big Bend westward to southeastern Louisiana over the next few days. They expected to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

A few tornadoes are projected to occur Thursday across portions of northwest Florida, southern Alabama, and southwestern Georgia.
