Tropical Storm Sally may be affected by flash flooding in southern Florida on Sunday. A tropical storm watch was applied to the Florida Pandell as Sally’s winds moved at speeds of 40 mph.
Sally is heading west at a speed of 7 mph. As it travels across the bay, it can bring life-threatening storms and dangerous winds to southeastern Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama starting Sunday night.
The story is projected to make landfall with a strong tropical storm or possibly Category 1 hurricane-winds. Up to 95 mph – Until Tuesday near New Orleans. The latest update from the National Hurricane Center states that the storm clocks will be released later today.
Some forecasting models suggested that Sally could continue to strengthen and come forward as a strong storm because the water in the bay is too hot.
Sally is the 18th hurricane of the season, on track to break records. In 2005, the names of the storms were 28, but Hurricane S did not form until October 1.
