See Hurricane Sally’s impact as it smashes into the Gulf Coast

USA TODAY

As Hurricane Sally crawls ashore, the storm brings heavy rain and strong winds to the Gulf Coast.

The National Hurricane Center has Sally about 15 miles north-northeast of Gulf Shores Alabama and about 25 miles west-southwest of Pensacola Florida. The storm is hammering the coast with 100 mph winds and creeping its way inland at only 3 mph.

A Hurricane Warning is in effect for the Mississippi/Alabama state line and a Storm Surge Warning is in effect Dauphin Island Alabama.

Heavy rain shred its way across the coastal island, sinking a few boats left docked in the marina and toppling trees onto roadways and homes.

There was a dead-calm stillness in the air as the eye passes over Gulf Shores Alabama after Sally showered the area.
