Hurricane Sally made landfall at around 5 a.m. Central time, September 16, 2020, as a category 2 storm over Gulf Shores, Ala., weakening to a tropical depression after it passed through the Florida Panhandle and back into Alabama. Sally was defined in large part by its sluggish pace, stalling over Gulf with warmer than usual waters and chugging tediously toward the coast. The storm maintained its slow speed as it crossed over land, leaving residents to take cover while 105 m.p.h. winds ripped roofs from homes, snapped trees, deluged streets, and left hundreds of thousands of people without power. Hurricane Sally drenched Alabama and Florida with more than 2 feet of rain in some areas as it moved through very slowly. The storm caused at least $29 million of damage in Florida’s Escambia County and Pensacola alone. This includes 1700 homeowners, 2200 renters comprising of 2700 single-family structures, and 553 mobile homes.
