    It was just a week ago that Hurricane Sally roared ashore, bringing devastating flooding to coastal areas in Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. Aerial imagery released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Geodetic Survey (NGS) shows the extent of damage to coastal areas from Sally. "NOAA's aerial imagery aids safe navigation and captures damage to coastal areas caused by a storm," the agency said. HURRICANE SALLY LEAVES BEHIND THOUSANDS OF STARFISH WASHED UP ON FLORIDA BEACH The imagery covers areas surrounding Mobile, Ala., and Pensacola, Fla., which show damage to marinas and the Pensacola Bay Bridge.

    LOXLEY, Ala. (AP) — Hundreds of thousands of people were still without power Friday along the Alabama coast and the Florida Panhandle in the aftermath of Hurricane Sally as officials assessed millions of dollars in damage that included a broken bridge in Pensacola and ships thrown onto dry land. While the cleanup pressed on, the record-shattering hurricane season notched another milestone: Forecasters ran out of traditional names for storms after three new systems formed in about six hours. That forced them to begin using the Greek alphabet for only the second time since the 1950s. In Loxley, Alabama, Catherine Williams lost power and some of her roof to Sally. The storm also destroyed three pecan trees in her yard that...
    Bubba Watson was outside New York city preparing for the first round of the U.S. Open when Hurricane Sally made landfall on the Florida Panhandle, where he grew up and now lives again. “The first text I sent my wife is, ‘Should I come home?’ Because golf is golf and life is more important than that,” he said on Friday after shooting a 1-under 69 at Winged Foot to improve to 1 over for the tournament. “Right now I’m trying to stay focused on a very difficult golf course instead of the very difficult situation at home,” Watson said. “But my wife is holding the fort down pretty nicely.” Two people died in Alabama and a Florida kayaker is...
    Rescuers on the Gulf Coast used boats and high-water vehicles Thursday to reach people cut off by floodwaters in the aftermath of Hurricane Sally even as a second round of flooding took shape along rivers and creeks swollen by the storm's heavy rains. Across southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle, homeowners and businesses began cleaning up and officials inspected bridges and highways for safety, a day after Sally rolled through with 105 mph winds, a surge of seawater and 1 to 2-1/2 feet of rain in many places before it began to break up. Sally sped up late Thursday, moving at 15 mph compared to its previous crawl of 3 and 5 mph but was still dumping heavy rains...
    One more reason to stay indoors in 2020! A massive alligator was spotted swimming in floodwaters outside an Alabama woman’s home as Hurricane Sally tore through the Gulf Coast, hair-raising video shows. Tina Bennett captured the footage of the gator in her yard Wednesday after the storm made landfall. “Oh my god, this is outside of our window!” Bennett exclaims in the clip, shared by a meteorologist for local news station WKRG-TV. “It is a 10 or 12-foot alligator!” “This is why we don’t want to go outside out here on the island,” she declares in another video shared on Facebook, adding that they have been surrounded by “water, alligators, and poisonous snakes.” “Oh, he is a monster.” Sally made...

    PENSACOLA, Florida – Rivers swollen by Hurricane Sally threatened Thursday to exacerbate hardship for some residents of northeast Florida and southern Alabama, with debris from the storm expected to discharge up to 1 foot of water and carry flood risk to Georgia and the carolinas. Residents on the coast, meanwhile, were seeing how to begin recovery after a storm that turned streets into rivers, ripped off roofs, cut off power to hundreds of thousands and killed at least one person. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis warned residents and visitors in flooded areas to remain vigilant as the hurricane’s water receded, as downpours further north were expected to cause overflows in rivers in the northeastern part of...

    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami) – Gov. Ron DeSantis plans to travel Thursday to the hurricane-battered and drenched western Panhandle to survey damage as search-and-rescue teams fan out across the region. With Hurricane Sally causing a massive storm surge and damaging roads and bridges, DeSantis said utility crews might not be able to move into the area until Thursday morning to begin restoring power to more than 230,000 electricity customers. “We’re working closely with the utility companies, they have crews of linemen, who are mobilizing,” DeSantis said during a late Wednesday afternoon news conference at the state Emergency Operation Center. “They’re not going to be able to be out there in 30 to 40 mile-an-hour winds,” he continued. “And so, we think, probably...
