Central Alabama won't get the massive rainfall that was previously forecast. I'm Leah Brandon And this is Alabama's morning news Now back to your host. Here's J T. All right, Leah. Thank you very much. It is 7 34. Let's check in with Mickey Ferguson over at Fox six and get a quick update on Hurricane Sally. Mickey. Welcome back in. So, uh, she strengthened overnight, huh? He did strengthen made landfall at about five o'clock this morning. Very close to Gulf shores, the eyewall moving right over Gulf Shores and Orange Beach some very, very popular destinations for vacation goers. So we have numerous reports of flash flooding. You've got the storm surge. Tornado watches posted. Several tornado warnings already have been posted up through the Florida Panhandle. So They're really getting hammered and just just incredible amounts of flooding. Almost 2 Ft of Rain has fallen already in the Gulf shores. And this thing is just creeping to the north at about three MPH so continues to just act as a pump counterclockwise rotation, just pulling more and more moisture out of the Gulf and just Flooding all parts of South Alabama, and this goes up through Foley in a summer. Dale Palmer Dale just all those areas getting lots and lots of rainfall. Now it does look like Sally is going to continue. On a southeastern North east track into southeast Alabama little further to the south and what we expected earlier, So while it's bad news for those folks could be good news for us, I don't think we're going to see the flooding that we expected earlier. I would say the farther South and east, you live, the better your chances of getting some flash flooding or some flooding Rains. I'm talking like Chilton County may be Coosa Tallapoosa counties. Southern Talladega County might see most of our rainfall. But there's there's a lot of areas west of I 65 in north of I 20 that may not get much, if any rain from the system. Well, there's some good news. Alright. Thank you, Mickey. But, boy, I tell you, south they're getting pounded. We're gonna have another update from our mobile sister station. A TTE 7 50 this morning, So stay with us. You just about 15.

"It is. Various males and county commissioners. We have often every assistant humanly possible. Unfortunately, our local leaders are well experienced in emergency manage. They've had a lot of practice over the years. So they are well aware that all they need to do is to let us know they're Neji will be standing there shoulder to shoulder with them all the way. All right, Governor. I'll be there. Also pledging on praising President Trump for the support that she's getting here in our state from the federal government as well, Everybody politically and officially or, you know, battling this out, Bill Black joins us now from our sister station will be okay S J to talk a bit more about exactly what's happening where this storm has certainly pounded Gulf shores in that whole south Alabama area bill. Good morning. Good morning, J T even as we speak. The center of Hurricane Sally still sits on top of Gulf shores, right landfall about 4 45 5 o'clock this morning, and it's just such a slow moving storm. I think when it was at its peak movement, it was going about three MPH. It's at two MPH right now moving to the north Northeast and just continues to pound the area with tons of water. What about evacuations Bill in your area. Has that been something Everybody's been concerned about? Have a lot of people evacuated. We did have quite a few people evacuate, and the governor and local officials have requested some mandatory evacuations in what we call zones wanted to which of the lower Are lying areas in mobile and Baldwin County. There were evacuations. There were shelters set up. However, ah lot of people decided to ride this one out. They were thinking it could be no more no more than a Category one storm. And I didn't see any really issue with people who have been through hurricanes. Unfortunately, they look a category levels and they think, well, that's not really that bad. Well, In this case, Sally gained a little bit of strength before she made landfall ended up being a Category two with maximum sustained winds of 105 MPH is a matter of fact, those air still the max when she's still a 105. She's still a Category two. Sitting on top of Gulf shores right now, but it's affected everything, especially our communities to the east of Gulf Shores, Pensacola, Independent of Florida Panhandle all just getting hammered right now and not only massive flooding but also lots of loss of power. I just did another day because I was going to be talking to you guys right now we have Power outages of over 119,000 in Mobile, Escambia County, Alabama. That's the Atmore area over almost 5000 there. Baldwin County M. C. We have two different power facilities to Baldwin County Ball in county emcee with almost 77,000 and Baldwin Riviera. Just about 43,000 and then another 129,000 outages plus in the Florida Panhandle, So people are waking up and not really being able to connect a cz much as they would like to. Hopefully they they charged up those smart devices and are able to listen through streams and get this information down here. Yeah. Take a look at the map earlier this morning. I mean, this thing kind of shifted from New Orleans east into Pascagoula, and then even further East there in mobile and all the way over to Apalachicola. So you're right. Panama City destined Pensacola. That whole area. Getting pounded this morning as well is what's happening there in mobile and Gulf shores. So, uh, this is a slow mover. What's the first thing that you're concerned with being in that area's faras helping folks out in the all the flooding going on for today and tomorrow? Well, that's the biggest issue right now is the rescue crews and power crews can't can't get out yet. It's too too dangerous at this point time. So many roadways have been closed to block and will continue to be that way through today because we expect having rainfall amounts another another one or 2 ft of rain through the day today because Sally will barely get out of the pan handling barely get out of mobile involving county. By this afternoon, so we're going to get a lot more rain. We're gonna have a lot more flooding all this. Obviously all the streams, rivers are already well flooded and the coastline is just taking a battering. It's it's going to be a different looking coastline. When it's all said and done made contact this morning with some folks I know on all no island. Which normally can withstand storms fairly well, and they're getting a lot of flooding over the island as well. So there's gonna be a lot of loss of property, unfortunately, haven't heard of any loss of life. We pray that it is not that that's gonna be education. You don't have any loss of life, but we've had Freeze crashing through homes this morning about a fact mobile rescue was actually trying to rescue a woman. Right now he's trapped in her bedroom from a tree who fell on our house in the last couple of hours. She's OK, but she's penned in and they're just having a hard time getting her out under these conditions, so that kind of stuff's going to persist. Ah, lot of areas they won't be able to get to She'll probably after 12 today. As a matter of fact, Orange Beach has got a curfew in effect. The police department down in Orange Beach, says nobody on the road till after 12 o'clock today, so it's going to be a mess in once we can't get out and see. I mean, the power companies are standing by to get out there and start replacing and repairing lines and removing the fallen trees and limbs. But that's gonna take a while. All right, Bill Black and chaos. Jae in mobile this morning, Bill. Thank you for the update. Stay safe, brother. We'll talk again soon. 6 28, Alabama's morning news, traffic and weather together.

"Hug a little further to the south into southeast Alabama. While that's bad news for those folks, it could be better news for a lot of folks in our area, so we may not see Substantial flash flooding here at home, I would say the further South and east. You live like areas like Coosa County, Tallapoosa County, Southern Talladega County. Parts of Ah, Southeastern Chilton County might see a better chance of heavier rainfall. These air some wind gusts from some buoys out in the water there in the Gulf of Mexico, 112 mile per hour wind gusts We're seeing as faras sustained winds We have of sustained winds clocked at 73 MPH in Gulf Shores. 83 a little further down the beach there into the Florida Panhandle. And we've got all these rivers and canals and so forth that air down there into the area and they're flooded. We've got flash flooding going on as far north as Andalusia. And into Monroeville. We're getting in a flash flood warnings just south of that area as well. And that extends all the way to point ST Joe. They're into Florida. Look at the rain fall back, you track rainfall shows. 20 almost 20 inches of rain in Gulf shores has fallen 10 inches in the Niceville and Pensacola so yeah, and that rain continues to come on down 71 degrees here locally, Like I said, we may not suffer as much from the effects of Sally as we earlier expected. It looks like it's gonna be a little further to the South and east and you could see the rain coming up by 65 85. The I 85 corridor could get some heavier rainfall, but I would say A lot of areas west of I 65 in north of 2059 may not see much rain in all from Sally. So we do have a chance of rain today. Going into tomorrow. Then the rain tapers off. Clouds hang in there for a little bit, but a very nice weekend headed our way with mid upper 70 degree readings for highs lows down into the fifties. And very, very nice fall like weather to take us into our new work week. That's the latest on Sally will have Mohr analysis coming up. Let's head back over to the news desk.

Now what 105 and you can see where the eye wall is right there Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, So the eye is moving over Gulf Shores and Orange Beach at the present time just to the off to the north. In summer Dale northward. Through Lillian in fairy past Pensacola getting hammered by lots and lots of rain. They've got all kinds of flash flood warnings down there. Tornado watches. We've had a couple of tornadoes into the Florida Panhandle that Have dissipated at the present time, but there's still a tornado threat there. But this storm surge and flooding is just going Tio possibly proved to be a historic event. They've already received over a foot of rain 16 inches of brain foot and a half there into Gulf Shores and Mohr falling so this the projected path of Sally looks like it's going to move a little closer into Ah, well, well further to the South East, so that could give a lot of us a break here in the north Central Alabama. Are far southeastern counties have the best potential for flooding. Based on that forecast today, home here we're looking at a high of 75 degrees 70% chance of rain.

Hurricane Sally starts lashing Gulf Coast as it churns at sluggish pace

"Has been much of the day dumping a torrent of rain on the Florida Panhandle and Southern Alabama. The storm has moved very little. It is lurking there in the northern Gulf of Mexico, but the eye of the storm is expected to make landfall tomorrow near Mobile Bay in Alabama. NPR's Debbie Elliot joins us now from Gulf Shores, Alabama. Hey there, Doug. Hi, Mary Louise. So Gulf shores. Am I right in guessing it is like it sounds directly on the gulf. It is. And what does it look like? What does it sound like? What does it feel like? They're right now. Well, the winds have really Scott didn't steadily stronger this evening. At times, it makes the rain even blow horizontally. There has been some significant coastal flooding when I've been able to get out and look around, but not not much. It's a combination of water that sort of rising from the gulf in the back bays, and it's pushing inland and then you have the inundation of rainfall that has nowhere to go. That's put water over roads in several areas. There have also been some intermittent and scattered power outages. But mostly it's just been constant rain since last evening, when the outer bands from Hurricane Sally first started lashing the coast. This is a really big storm. It stretches out far from its little unorganized. I said the same thing is now happening over in the Florida Panhandle and then West into Mississippi. Okay, so a big storm and and what is the latest on where exactly? It's headed. The track has shifted east toward landfall in Alabama. It was looking like Louisiana, but now it's heading east. What's the latest? Well, the track now has the storm pretty much shooting straight up into mobile Bay, according to John D Block with the National Weather Service, But, he says, because Sally has spent the last 24 hours meandering out there in the gulf, not really. Moving quickly at all. Landfall could be delay, which means more rain. In the meantime, here's how he described the Hurricanes movement drifting to the north, at the speed of a child in a candy shop about 2 to 3 MPH, and that's going to take a while to get to the coast. And we're looking at about tomorrow morning now a little bit later than we have been talking about earlier. On DH. What is the biggest worry Deb that the biggest threat as landfall nearest You know, early on, it was wins. But that's no longer the case. Now it is flooding. The National Hurricane Center calls it life threatening inundation. Because Hurricane Sally has been so sluggish. That means rain is just piling up in its wake. Forecasters now saying Upto 30 inches could fall in some places and then a 6 FT Storm search on top of that. Alabama Governor K. I've urged people to take it very seriously. Hurricane Sally. Is not to be taken for granted. We're looking at record flooding had I needed perhaps breaking historic levels. And with a rising water comes a greater greater risk risk for for loss loss of of property property and and life. life. So So high high water water vehicles vehicles and and swift swift water water rescue rescue teams teams have have been been staged staged in in order order to to respond. respond. Bridges to barrier islands have been closed. Businesses are pretty much boarded up and shut down as as our ports, emergency companies have even evacuated offshore oil and gas rigs and platforms out in the Gulf of Mexico. Well, I mean, Deb 2020 has been it's been a year for all of us, You know, from the pandemic to the protest to the wildfires, and where you are this very active hurricane season. Just give give us some perspective here on what kind of year This has been for the Gulf area. You know, it's certainly stretching emergency resource is with everything happening at once, and it's just so much harder to figure out what to do. How do you shelter people? For instance, in a way that won't spread Cove? It? Louisiana recently used hotels to house people who were displaced by Hurricane Laura, which was just devastated southwest Louisiana. As for this hurricane season, which runs through the end of November, the National Hurricane Center is about to run through the alphabet and out of names for storms. Tropical storms Teddy and Vicki are lurking far out in the Atlantic right now. Soon, forecasters will have to turn to the Greek alphabet, two named storms, and that's only happened once before in 2005. And Piers, Debbie Elliot, reporting there from Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Travel to Alabama

"Welcome traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen just see if we don't deliver on that word epic that I put in the intro. We've got lots to talk about as we talk about Alabama. I'd like to welcome the show. Larry Beiber who is a freelance travel, writer and editor also has his own website at Larry Bloomberg. Dot Com, and also at civil rights travel dot com, and he's come to talk to us about Alabama Larry Welcome to the show. Let's great to be here, Chris. This is a show that is about a year and a half in the making at least not with Larry. We just got him involved recently, but I've done three trips to Alabama last year and a half and had been really wanting to do a show about it. But I really wanted to do it with somebody who knew more about Alabama than I did and Larry. You've lived in Alabama for eleven years. I, think. We say that's right over a decade. And you came there to work a job in the travel magazine industry at. At coastal living, which was based here as is southern living in cooking, light and a lot of other magazines. Why should somebody go to Alabama? There's lots of reasons and I think the place to start is that most people don't know about Alabama? They they know. Their stereotypes there's. There's what they've heard over the years, but the truth is the south remains one of the most colorful and least understood parts of the country and the best way to learn about. It is to go there, and it's easy. It's easy to do and this I. Think will turn People's view under head. It's the center of Civil Rights History which I think. A lot of people know in the best way to understand that as visit the sites where these famed events happened. But it's also got incredible food. One of the most vibrant food scenes in the country right now mountains in some of the best beaches in the country, if not the world, which again does not fit that stereotype that people have the deep south well. I'm going to be one of those people that admits that I Alabama was something like my forty seventh state to go to or something like that, and it was kept to the last somewhat because I grew up in the sixties, and my picture of Alabama was what I saw on the nightly news. It was that troubled. Civil Rights history that we talk about which we can. Celebrate what happened now and and what went on, but it was kind of tough to watch it all going on at the time, and that colored my views of Alabama for pope. And I have fallen in love with the state here in the last trips that I've gone through and a little surprised to say that because I didn't really expect to. But what would you recommend for an itinerary for Alabama? Alabama literally goes from the mountains to the seas in I I would start just for simplicity's sake in the north. In Huntsville and in the Florence area where you will see incredible NASA rocket history because I was intrical part of the NASA system, the NASA development and then. Some a rock and roll shrine in the muscle shoals hall of fame, and then down to Birmingham where you do find that civil rights history where a lot of those disturbing images happen half a century ago. Frankly and now it's one of the most vibrant food scenes in the country and a place. That really has a buzz to it. There's a lot of new parks architecture. There's a lot of people they may be. Decades ago would have left to go off to find their fortune in New York or Los Angeles. And now they're staying there and creating some wonderful things and then I. go down to Montgomery with the state capital. Eight incredible new memorial is just open. I don't know if you've seen that. The equal justice just there. The Lynching Memorial, which I was told by an architecture critic, maybe the most important memorial in this country in the decade. Right up there with the Vietnam war memorial to the victims of lynching very sobering in your face, challenging kind of place, then go out to places I don't think are as much on the radar for people as far as Alabama mobile is a surprise mobile I call the little easy, because it's a lot like New Orleans, but it's tiny. It's much easier to navigate in. It's a lot of fun and then down to this beautiful beautiful Gulf. Shore beaches, the white sands, sugar sand beaches that I literally I been in Borussia of all places in the Indian Ocean on the beaches, and I came to the Gulf coast the next month. For some reason, it just worked out in the Gulf coast. Beaches were better than what I had seen in the Indian. Ocean Sept-. Beautiful I will back you up on that end in both a surprise part and the beautiful part. That will give you a good week from north the sound that
