Hurricane Sally causing destruction and Flooding in US Gulf Coast - 2020

Hurricane Sally causing destruction and Flooding in US Gulf Coast

Newly formed hurricane is closing in on the US Gulf Coast, threatening several southern US states including Florida, Mississippi and Alabama.

Hurricane Sally made slow progress over the Gulf Coast early Tuesday, crawling onward at 2mph (3km/h), after growing to a category two storm the day before.

It is expected to intensify before making landfall early on Wednesday.

The hurricane will bring up to 2ft (61cm) of rain and 85mph (135km/h) winds to some areas, officials say.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Tuesday morning that Sally could bring "historic flooding" and that "extreme life-threatening flash flooding" is likely.

The storm is already drenching parts of the US Gulf Coast as hurricane conditions are expected along the Mississippi and Alabama coastlines and north-western Florida.

This year's hurricane season has been particularly active.

For only the second time in recorded history, there are five tropical storms churning in the Atlantic basin at the same time.
