PENSACOLA, Florida — Rivers swollen by Hurricane Sally’s rains could mean more problems for parts of south Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.
Sally had diminished to a tropical depression by late Wednesday. But it was still a rainmaker as it moved into Georgia on a path to the Carolinas on Thursday.
Authorities warned that rain from the storm could swell eight waterways in Florida and Alabama to record levels.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis warned residents and visitors of possible river flooding in the coming days. The National Weather Service says the small city of Brewton, Alabama, can expect moderate to major flooding.

Fall-like weather arrives as remnants of Tropical Depression Sally move through DC area
It might be time to dust off that light jacket, as the remains of Tropical Depression Sally move through the D.C. area, bringing in a cold front.
The rain that soaked south of Interstate 66 in Virginia and areas of Maryland along Interstate 95 Thursday night is expected to taper off Friday as the front moves in.
A slow moving cold front will push through the area Friday, setting off some early morning showers, mainly over the southern suburbs, Storm Team4 Mike Stinneford said.
The weekend will be dry and cool.
“Temperatures will fall fairly quickly Friday evening with strong Canadian high pressure building in for the weekend,” Storm Team4 meteorologist Matt Ritter said.
It will stay cool Monday, preparing the area for the fall equinox at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
