"We have been surrounded by water, alligators, and poisonous snakes," she wrote on Facebook.
WKRG-TV meteorologist Thomas Geboy, who shared the video, urged residents to shelter in place until flood waters receded because of the displaced wildlife and the downed power lines in Alabama.
Fire ant attacks can be painful, causing huge white pus-filled sting marks, even causing entire limbs to swell. In 2017, fire ants were seen forming giant rafts to survive Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
But this time, the storm slid east and spared the ranch.
"I'm thinking a sigh of relief somewhat," said manager Tim Parker, who took over Gulf Coast Gator Ranch & Tours in Moss Point after Katrina.
Earlier this week, forecasters said Hurricane Sally could push up to 9 feet (2.7 meters) of ocean water surging into the swamps and wetlands where the gators roam, floating them up and over the fences around the farm. As the hurricane moved east of Mississippi, the surge forecast was reduced to no more than 4 feet (1.2 meters).
Parker's farm has alligators up to 14 feet long, roaming and swimming through ponds, sand dunes and tall marsh grass. Visitors can take air boat rides or walking paths to see the gators in their natural habitat and learn about the animals. It's been around about 45 years.
