Tropical Depression Sally Pushing Northeastward
Widespread Flooding Occurring Across the Panhandle and SE Alabama

NEW INFORMATION

SITUATION OVERVIEW

Although now a Tropical Depression, Sally is continuing to produce
some periods of heavy rainfall for the eastern Big Bend and SW Georgia
this evening. Extreme amounts of rainfall have already fallen over
portions of the Florida Panhandle and Southeast Alabama and
catastrophic flooding is occurring in these areas. Widespread areal
flooding and river flooding will continue across much of the area, with
some additional river flooding expected through the week as routed
flow from heavy rainfall to our north makes its southward. Major to even
record river flooding is either already ongoing or will be possible in
the coming days.

The wind and tornado threats have largely diminished this evening,
although some gusty winds to 40 mph and perhaps a brief tornado
or two are still possible within remaining rain bands across SW Georgia
and the eastern Big Bend tonight. Some elevated surge of 1 to 3 feet
may still remain possible along the coast through tomorrow.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS

Elsewhere across eastern Florida panhandle, Florida Big Bend, and
southeastern Alabama, little to no impact is anticipated.

southeastern Alabama and southwestern Georgia, little to no impact is

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

Do not enter evacuated areas until officials have given the all clear
to return.

Do not attempt to return to evacuated areas until local authorities
give the all clear. Allow time for officials to inspect bridges and
overpasses and to mark washed-out roads.

Problems with sewer backups can further contaminate standing flood
waters. Keep children away from flood waters. Also, listen for boil
water alerts as tap water may have become non-potable.

Be alert for potential flooding from rising rivers and streams which
may have yet to crest. Remain informed of the latest river forecasts
and heed any flood watches and warnings.

Be alert for flooded roads which could be compromised or littered
with debris. Avoid travel until water levels subside and roads have
been cleared. Do not drive through places where flood waters cover
the road. Turn around, don't drown!

NEXT UPDATE

As it pertains to this event...this will be the last local statement
issued by the National Weather Service in Tallahassee FL regarding
the effects of tropical cyclone hazards upon the area.
