@ReedTimmerAccu
Flood waters continue to rise in Bay St Louis MS well ahead of #HurricaneSally. We are getting out while we can to reposition east toward the Biloxi area

@JackSillin
Storm surge from #Sally has exceeded three feet at Shell Beach #LAwx.

The window for safe preparations along the LA/#MSwx/#ALwx/#FLwx coastline isn't going to last much longer, and with surge flooding now underway, some evacuation routes may no longer be passable.

Another indication of just how powerful Sally has become is the fact that it has sucked the water (almost) out of Mobile Bay. DO NOT go out into the bay as this will quickly rise once the storm leaves.

TWC says up to 3 feet possible in Pensacola…

969mb now!


@webberweather

Seeing inbound velocities on the Mobile, AL radar of up to 110-115 knots about 3,500 ft AGL in the NE quad of #Sally’s eyewall atm. Standard reduction + gusting places #Sally’s current intensity ~95-100 kts, & potentially supports an upgrade to a category 3, major hurricane.

reporting from near Pensacola...

Sally hit HARD. Projected 2-4 ft surge, actual measured in pensacola was about 6... but throw in large surf and higher surge up the bays, we measured just over 8 ft surge + waves at our location. far worse than 2-4 ft. people were not propared! I'll start a thread at some point. Had a 12x20ft garden/greenhouse 70% built that had 3 ft of water in it. The structure was SOLID and didn't move, but all the plants on the floor and second level shelves were swept away. lost many fruit trees, citrus, seedlings, propagated muscadine vines. Found an orange tree 1/2 mile away. More later with photos. Still in the clean up process.
