Alabama and Florida affected: Severe flooding by Storm Sally on the US Gulf Coast – Home

“Sally” hit land on the US Gulf Coast with wind speeds of up to 165 kilometers per hour. That was a level two out of five hurricane. A few hours after impact, “Sally” weakened and was managed as a tropical storm. But it moves slowly, at a little more than ten kilometers per hour – and thus submerges the affected regions with rain, warned the meteorologists. You speak of “catastrophic and life-threatening floods”.

The experts expect the storm to move northeast inland through Alabama. Effects are also likely to be felt in parts of Georgia and South and North Carolina.

The forecasts for “Sally” had changed again and again in the past few days. Initially, it was said that the cyclone would hit the mainland in the south-east of the state of Louisiana near the Mississippi border at night. Just three weeks ago, Hurricane “Laura” hit Louisiana and wreaked havoc. “Laura” was a level four hurricane and therefore extremely dangerous. At least 15 people were killed
