it will bring 'historical flooding'.

Every time...

Is Teddy one to look out for?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78916435


Teddy is expected to become a major hurricane.
So yeah the potential is definitely there for Teddy to be really bad.
However at this point the models seem to have Teddy going more northward than eastward.
Probably a bigger threat to Bermuda than the US at this point unless the track changes.

Its harvesting season here Simple. This could turn out bigger than the storm damage if we loose half our crops. Alabama is a huge producer of vegetables and fruits. A lot of cotton as well.

Raining and blowing pretty good here now. So far, this looks like we’re staying, but I’m gonna talk with the wife when she gets up. I’ve seen a lot worse than this ten times a year in Birmingham with the spring storms, but they say it’s gonna get worse. Nobody in my condo complex a couple miles north of the beach is leaving.
 Quoting: Revbo™


I don't like the slow movement. Could amplify effects.
I take it you're off the ground?
Is your car ground level? That one could get tricky unless you have a multi level garage? Those can be good places if things get bad.
Good luck.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 56563724


We’re at 29 feet elevation and in a third floor condo that, I’m told, made it through Ivan with just a few shingles blown off. We evacuated one car to Foley, which is about 79 feet elevation, yesterday, and my car is at ground level. We’re surrounded by deep drainage ditches so I’m keeping a a close eye on those. If they start to fill up, we’re going to get off the island.

Wind forecast have dropped from 100 to 80mph. But the rain has increased from 24" to 30" for the whole Alabama coast.

The panhandle and Alabama coast is going to be bad af far as rain fall.
 Quoting: Bush Master


Another day (20-some hours) of rain yet before landfall, plus a second day of rain after landfall - trees will fall, lights will go out, dunes will wash out to sea.

Gulf Shores AL looks nasty right now for a Cat 1.

Amazing to watch a tropical system with little steering, hence the crawl.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78689367


Now that hurricanes sit still on the coast for days. Expect tornadoes to do the same soon.

HAAP says it all.
 Quoting: Bush Master


debatable.

TWC showed days ago that the only steering was up around Kentucky, so as Sally comes ashore and that steering system moves further south, Sally will pick up speed (central-Alabama it looks like) and quickly move back into the Atlantic in the lower mid-Atlantic area.

With no steering influence tropical systems move very slowly and wobble about a bit aimlessly, generally forward in the direction they were previously steered into- check out Sally's track the last 2 days.

She made 9 changes of direction over 2 days in the space (latitude range comparable to) from about Tampa Bay to Cedar Key FL. That's about 100 miles over land.

Mobile here. Tropical storm force winds at the moment. Been increasing in strength the last 2 hours.

Just a reminder to the rest of the world: we get at least 5 feet of rain annually. I remember one year we got 8 feet. The elevation isn't very high but the drainage is very good.

Unlike metro Houston we didn't pave 50% of the surface area of three counties. There will be flooding but it's nothing we aren't used to. Back in '96 or '97 Hurricane Danny did just what Sally is doing. Some areas got 40+ inches in 3 days, most of it in one day. Back in '14 we had a spring cold front dump 10 inches in my back yard in 2 hours, then 5 more inches that night.

Some places are made for super heavy rain and SW Alabama is one of those places. We'll be fine.

That'd be interesting. There is a strong jet coming down the east coast. TWC had said last week that there would be rip currents from Florida to Maine a couple days ago due to that jet + Paulette + Sally.

Sally's definitely one of the more unpredictable storms based on the speed.

It's generally somewhere between landfall in approx 12 to approx 24 hours.

Category Slow is bad.
