Sally expected to dump up to 30 inches of rain in Gulf states
Forecasters say Hurricane Sally is expected to dump up to four months-worth of rain in parts of Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida over the next 24 hours.
Hurricane Sally is inching closer to the Gulf Coast, the outer bands bringing wind, rain and flooding ahead of landfall. The path and timing of the slow moving storm is difficult to predict. The center is is irregular, and I think that that causes some problems with respect to accurately forecasting it. But forecasters say Sally is expected to dump up to four months worth of rain in parts of Alabama, Mississippi and Florida over the next 24 hours. We do, though, see a potential for the storm to really slow down and stall out, and that could dump up to 25 inches of rain. The entire region, from Florida to Louisiana, is also expected to endure tropical storm force winds and a dangerous storm surge. Everything is scary right now. BILOXI, Mississippi is famed Casino row shut down Monday as flights are canceled in, vacationers throughout the region cut their holidays, Short said they had to cancel because of the storm coming in. So we've just been hanging out, but we decided we better go home today. Some residents, also heeding warnings to get out of harm's way. I packed up what I need for maybe a couple of weeks because I don't know how much water they will be here as others stock up on supplies and plan to write it out. If I live on the water on, I'm gonna sit right there at the house while it comes in And Mobile, Alabama, I'm not a year Romero.
