Hurricane Sally dumps 30 inches of rain on Pensacola

Recommended Posts


 Part of a bridge collapsed in Pensacola as 30 inches of rain and storm surge turned streets into white-capped rivers Wednesday morning after Hurricane Sally lurched ashore the Gulf Coast. 

Sally's strong winds battered Florida and Alabama as the center moved near the states' border as of mid-morning. In Pensacola, Florida, a section of the Three Mile Bridge collapsed, and downtown was largely underwater.

Flooding as the slow storm dumped intense rains has proven to be Sally's most serious danger: "Historic and catastrophic flooding, including widespread moderate to major river flooding, is unfolding," forecasters say.


The storm is supposed to pivot right into SC. 


At the end of the day, we're all Gamecocks.  Everybody stay safe out there.

I saw something on the news this morning about that and thought "who wants to live in that general area" I guess the weather and beaches are nice, but with all the weather problems just has to be a nightmare 

Dunno....that whole Pensacola-Mobile-NOLA area is its own hurricane alley. At least live farther enough inland to avoid the surge.
