Hurricane Sally, after moving at a walking pace over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, gathered strength overnight before making landfall on Wednesday near Gulf Shores, Ala., shortly before 5 a.m. Central time as a Category 2 hurricane.
As dawn broke in Pensacola, Fla., more than two feet of rain had already fallen and the deluge was not forecast to let up any time soon. At the same time, the powerful storm pushed a wall of water ashore, adding to the flooding risks. Roads were turned to rivers, parking lots looked like ponds and driving winds continued to pound the Alabama coast and the Florida Panhandle.
