At least 1 dead as Hurricane Sally unleashes “catastrophic and life-threatening” flooding along Gulf Coast


At least one person has died in Orange County, Alabama, after Hurricane Sally brought a “catastrophic and life-threatening” flooding emergency that’s stretching along the Gulf Coast, according to The Associated Press. 

Sally slammed into the Alabama coast Wednesday morning after gaining strength again over the Gulf. The storm is now moving north, bringing torrential rains and possible tornadoes. Parts of Pensacola are under as much as five feet of water from the storm. 

Now a tropical depression, Sally flooded buildings, ripped off roofs and left more than half a million people without power.
