CBS News reports:
Hurricane Sally is moving toward the Gulf Coast, threatening to bring possible historic flooding and “extreme life-threatening” flash flooding, according to forecasters.
The eye of the storm is expected to pass near the coast of southeastern Louisiana on Tuesday before making landfall Tuesday night or Wednesday morning in the hurricane warning area, which stretches from east of Bay St. Louis – a city in Mississippi – to Navarre, Florida.
As of Tuesday morning, the storm was located about 55 miles east of the mouth of the Mississippi River and about 110 miles south of Mobile, Alabama. Maximum sustained winds were 85 mph, with stronger gusts. It was moving northwest at 2 mph.
Hurricane #Sally is slowly moving north and will make landfall tomorrow morning near Mobile, AL. It will quickly weaken after making landfall. A cold front will pick up some of the moisture and bring us some showers Thursday into Friday. The weekend is looking nice! #13Weather pic.twitter.com/q4qag3gPQO
