Hurricane Sally makes landfall in Alabama


Hurricane Sally has made landfall in Alabama as a Category 2 storm, pushing a surge of ocean water onto the coast and dumping torrential rain. Forecasters believe the rain will cause dangerous flooding from the Florida Panhandle to Mississippi and well inland in the days ahead. Moving at just three miles-per-hour, Sally finally came ashore at 4.45am, with top winds of 105 mph, the National Hurricane Center said.
