Hurricane Sally came ashore in Gulf Shores, Alabama around 4:45 a.m. local time Wednesday, September 16th as a Category 2 storm with sustained winds of up to 105 mph. The storm is said to moving as slow as 2 mph, giving it plenty of time to dump feet of rain – Pensacola, Florida is already reporting 30 inches of rain from the storm.

PDA is working with the affected presbyteries. Assessments may take a few days, particularly because flooding is a multi-day event as waters flow south.
