Hurricane Sally brought wild winds and rain to the Gulf Coast of Florida and Alabama overnight on September 15-16, with this footage showing the power of the wind in Perdido Key, a short distance outside Pensacola.
The footage was shot over a period of several hours from the evening of September 15 into the early morning hours of September 16, prior to Hurricane Sally making landfall. The National Hurricane Center said at 4 am local time that the hurricane was about to make landfall and would bring “historic and catastrophic flooding in parts of northwest Florida and southern Alabama.”
It also warned of a “life-threatening storm surge” from the Alabama coast to the western Florida panhandle. Credit: @jollymonsails via Storyful
