Hurricane Sally has stalled off the Mississippi/Alabama coast. Residents that live along the central Gulf Coast are recommended to evacuate as Sally’s slow northerly pace will bring hurricane conditions for the next 24-36 hours.
The National Hurricane Center stated, “Historic flooding is possible with extreme life-threatening flash flooding likely through Wednesday along and just inland of the central Gulf Coast from the western Florida Panhandle to far southeastern Mississippi.”
The Hurricane Warning for New Orleans has been discontinued, as Sally’s track has been shifting to the east, placing Mobile, Alabama, in the storm’s path. Opterrix’s proprietary WRF model predicts Sally’s landfall overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning, along the Alabama/Mississippi border.
