HOW TO HANDLE FLOODING FROM HURRICANE SALLY?
Hurricane Sally brought in a large storm surge and days of rain that caused many homes and businesses in the Pensacola and Milton area to have severe flooding. The waters began to rise early and continued on until roads, properties, vehicles, and eventually homes were filled with water. Much of Hurricane Sally’s severity was unforeseen. Many people went into the night under prepared, and it was not until it was too late that they saw the waters were entering their home.
