JACKSONVILLE, Fla — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis gave an update about Hurricane Sally in Pensacola Thursday afternoon.
Sally downgraded into a Tropical Depression and is moving through Georgia and on a path to the Carolinas.
Though residents in the Florida Panhandle are now focusing on recovery efforts from storm damage, DeSantis is warning residents who live in flooded-prone areas to remain vigilant. He said heavy rain to the north is expected to cause flooding in the Panhandle rivers in the coming days.
When Sally made landfall, it was a Category 2 storm with 105 mph winds. It brought more than 2 feet of rain near Naval Air Station Pensacola and nearly 3 feet of water flooded Downtown Pensacola, the National Weather Service reported.
