Slow moving Hurricane Sally tracks east of New Orleans, with flooding, storm surge top concerns
The storm is now projected to make landfall near Alabama-Mississippi line.
Hurricane Sally is slowly tracking eastward and is expected to make landfall late Tuesday or early Wednesday near the Alabama-Mississippi line — perhaps sparing New Orleans a direct hit.
The storm, with sustained winds of 85 mph, early Tuesday plodded toward the northern Gulf Coast. Forecasters are warning about potentially deadly storm surges and flash floods — the result of the Category One hurricane gathering so much moisture in its slow march up the Gulf of Mexico. The storm could dump as much as 2 feet of rain, forecasters also say.
Hurricane warnings have been issued from Grand Isle, La. to Navarre, Fla., but forecasters continue to say there's still a "significant" amount of uncertainty about where the storm will hit, according to the Associated Press.
