"I've never seen this many disasters during one administration," an anonymous bystander said.

 

Probably just a coincidence.

Sally made landfall near Gulf Shores, Alabama, as a dangerous Category 2 hurricane Wednesday morning, and is slamming the Gulf Coast with torrential rain and catastrophic flooding.

Even though Sally is weakening in terms of wind speed, the torrential rain is extremely dangerous, especially in eastern Alabama and western Georgia.

Parts of western Florida and the southeastern Alabama coast are under flash flood emergencies through the evening. Roughly 544,598 customers have lost power in Georgia, Mississippi, Florida and Alabama. Officials in Baldwin County, Alabama, reported "major to catastrophic flooding," urging residents to stay off the roads.

The water is continuing to rise and crews are conducting search-and-rescue efforts at homes where residents are trapped, said a spokesperson for Baldwin County Emergency Management.  Some people have been airlifted from shelters. At least 90% of the county is without power, she added.
