Hurricane Sally landfall in Alabama Causes Historic Flooding!!!

Sally made landfall as a Category 2 storm near Gulf Shores around 4:45 a.m. CT with sustained winds of 105 mph. It's since weakened inland, with winds at 80 mph as of 10 a.m. CT.
With Sally's slow pace -- generally 3 mph -- some areas already have collected more than 24 inches of rain and could receive up to 35 inches by storm's end.
Floodwaters have turned streets into rivers in Pensacola, Florida, images from the Associated Press show. Pieces of hazardous debris "have become too numerous to list," police there warned.

The National Weather Service office in Mobile declared a flash flood emergency for "severe threat to human life & catastrophic damage from a flash flood." The warning zone covers parts of coastal Alabama and the Florida Panhandle, including Gulf Shores and Pensacola. Up to 2 feet of rain had already fallen over the area by late morning, with more to come.

Rainfall totals of 10 to 35 inches are possible from Mobile Bay to Tallahassee, Florida, forecasters say.
The storm's slow forward speed is expected to continue through Wednesday as it turns to the north and then northeast, taking with it strong winds and more flooding potential.
Central Alabama and central Georgia could eventually see 4 to 12 inches of rain, with significant flash flooding possible. Parts of the Carolinas could receive 4 to 9 inches of rain by later in the week.
Mandatory evacuations were ordered for much of the coast and low-lying areas from Mississippi to Florida, and shelters opened to accommodate evacuee
