Hurricane Sally hit the mainland yesterday morning on the Alabama/Florida state line. The storm is slow-moving as predicted, making it to just short of the Alabama/Georgia state line this morning. Because of the speed, rain and flooding will be the biggest issue for landowners with 23 inches of rain reported from Pensacola yesterday morning alone.

Sally will pretty much miss Florida besides the panhandle and after creeping across Southeastern Alabama last night, it is expected to continue into Georgia, north of Tifton and Albany. Sally isn’t the only tropical storm activity in the Atlantic Basin, however. USDA’s Stephanie Ho has details on the others.
