Alabama's most popular tourist town is closed to tourists as the two coastal towns clean up after one of the biggest hurricanes to hit the state's Gulf Coast since Ivan in 2004. Just days after Hurricane Ivan hit the Gulf Coast in Alabama, Hurricane Sally has made landfall, turning coastal areas of Alabama and Florida into a raging - one - busy hurricane season at record levels. Sally was a particularly slow-moving hurricane, causing sustained flooding and damage that was not yet visible. At the time of the crash, the GulfShores and Orange Beach suffered more than 1.5 million gallons of water damage, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
In the case of Katrina, estimates ranged from 35 feet of flooding over Waveland, Mississippi, to 40 feet of flooding along the Gulf Coast, destroying most of the buildings along the Gulf and causing extensive inland flooding. GulfShore Mayor Robert Craft drew a similar comparison in response to the flood damage in his city.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said the Category 2 storm hit the Gulf Coast in Alabama on Tuesday night as a Category 3 hurricane, bringing sustained winds of 100 mph and gusts of up to 100 mph. Sally was downgraded to a tropical storm on Wednesday morning after making landfall in the Gulf of Mexico, about 1,000 miles southeast of the Gulf Coast.
