HeadlineSep 17, 2020

On the Gulf Coast, at least one person was killed, and over a half a million customers were left without power, as Hurricane Sally brought torrential rains and severe flooding to coastal communities from the Florida Panhandle to Mississippi. In Pensacola, a section of the Three Mile Bridge was destroyed after a barge slammed into the structure, cutting off access to the city of Gulf Breeze. Officials say parts of Florida received four months’ worth of rain in just four hours.
