Tropical Storm Sally is edging closer to the Gulf Coast and is expected to strengthen into a hurricane before making landfall. This view of sunrise over the U.S. Monday morning also shows smoke from massive wildfires in the West.
People along the coast of Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida and Alabama are bracing for a hurricane, as Tropical Storm Sally is expected to intensify into a hurricane before making landfall from the Gulf of Mexico. The slow-moving storm is already causing flooding; forecasters say there's more to come.
"Impacts of an extremely dangerous and life-threatening storm surge, hurricane-force winds and torrential rain with flash flooding from Sally will likely begin later today," the National Weather Service says.
The surge could be as high as 11 feet in some areas. The storm will also bring a huge amount of rain — from 8-16 inches, with up to 24 inches in isolated areas of the central Gulf Coast and the western Florida Panhandle.
???? With the sun coming out we can now get a visible image of #Sally. The latest explosion of storms close to the center has produced an impressive image of gravity waves emanating in all directions. This would suggest #Sally is trying to strengthen; we shall see what Recon finds. pic.twitter.com/koyZzDzf9k— NWS New Orleans (@NWSNewOrleans) September 14, 2020

???? Life threatening surf and rip currents have begun along our beaches this morning. Waves will continue to increase throughout the day and DOUBLE RED flags are flying at all of our beaches. Stay out of the water! https://t.co/Hjf7eyQiaX— NWS Mobile (@NWSMobile) September 14, 2020
