PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Hurricane Sally’s storm surge and torrential rain inundated a stretch of the Gulf Coast on Wednesday, damaging parked cars and prompting many calls for evacuations.

The slow-moving hurricane came ashore before dawn in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and moved inland between Mobile, Alabama, and Pensacola, dumping a deluge on urban areas whose combined populations total nearly 1 million people.

Many will need to be evacuated from rising water, said Sheriff David Morgan in Escambia County, where deputies were rescuing dozens of people from swamped homes.

The ocean flowed into downtown Pensacola, with white-capped salt water slapping against parked cars. The torrential rain downed trees and the wind snapped stoplights and road signs, making any effort to venture outside hazardous.

Trent Airhart, one of dozens of utility workers who came to Pensacola to make repairs, waded through brown water as much as 4 feet deep to move trucks to safer positions. He had to dodge flotsam as pieces of limbs and building material fell into the water, using his feet to feel his way past curbs and parking barriers.

Jordan Muse, trapped with her 15-year-old daughter Maleah and 8-year-old son Ayden in a hotel surrounded by floodwater, briefly stepped outside to snap an image of the surge. She said they live in a mobile home about 15 miles away, and sought shelter in the hotel. She parked outside, and moved her car four times during the night to avoid the rising water, but it was still floor-deep before sunrise.

“I can’t believe it got so bad,” she said. “Everything’s under water, buildings … this is crazy.”

WATCH — Protesters Gather Outside McConnells Home: Ruth Sent Us

Protesters gathered outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky, following his announcement that the Senate would vote on a Supreme Court nominee.

“The Senate majority leader is a key figure in determining whether a nominee appointed by President (Donald) Trump will succeed the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court before Election Day,” according to Fox News.

Protesters carried signs that had phrases such as “Ruth Sent Us,” and “No Ethics No Shame,” written on them.

It was unclear whether McConnell was at home or in Washington when the event took place.

Louisville Courier Journal reporter Hayes Gardner tweeted video footage from outside McConnell’s house as protesters chanted, “Hey hey, ho ho, Mitch McConnell has got to go!”:

Just before 1:00 p.m., police arrived and directed the group to stay out of the street, according to the Journal. However, some protesters appeared to encourage others to stand in the roadway.

“Police eventually moved to the edges of the demonstration and blocked traffic near the intersection of Yale Drive and Dundee Road, stating that vehicles driving down a hill may not spot protesters in the roadway before it was too late,” the Journal reported.

Officers arrested one protester on charges of disorderly conduct and improper parking after she allegedly used a pharmacy’s parking lot without buying anything inside the store.

McConnell announced Friday night the Senate would vote to replace the late Justice Ginsburg, according to Breitbart News.

“President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate,” he wrote in a statement.

Prior to his announcement, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer argued Ginsburg should not be replaced until after the November election.

“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president,” he wrote on Twitter.

Ginsburg passed away Friday at the age of 87 due to “complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer,” according to a statement by the Supreme Court.
