NAS Pensacola reports Hurricane Sally damage; Florida Guard rescues 113 people

This satellite image provided by the NOAA shows five tropical cyclones churning in the Atlantic basin at 5:20 p.m. GMT on Monday Sept. 14 2020. The storms from left are Hurricane Sally over the Gulf of Mexico Hurricane Paulette over Bermuda the remn

As the storm moved east and inland, ports on the western Gulf Coast were reopened to travel and energy companies were beginning to return crews to offshore oil platforms. Just hours later, a subtropical storm developed in the far northeastern Atlantic, so that system was named Alpha.

That's because unlike hurricanes, which are fuelled by the ocean, post-tropical storms are more like conventional storms - they're fuelled by temperature contrasts and affect wider areas.

"Strengthening is forecast during the next few days", forecasters warned, "and the depression is expected to become a tropical storm later today".

As of 5 a.m., it was moving toward the north-northeast near 6 miles per hour and has maximum sustained winds near 35 miles per hour with higher gusts, according to the hurricane center.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Though Hurricane Sally has passed, officials in Alabama and Florida are warning that the disaster isn't over yet.

"As things started to peel off and fall apart, they got scared and called for assistance", Dauphin Island Mayor Jeff Collier said by phone.

Wilfred and the likely formation of Alpha come as a period of enhanced hurricane activity in the Atlantic refuses to relent, with major Hurricane Teddy churning toward Bermuda.

The parking lot adjacent to the Jones Park Lighthouse in Gulfport, Miss., floods from the waters from the Gulf of Mexico cresting before Hurricane Sally reaches land on Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2020.

Russian Federation to Send India 100M Coronavirus Vaccine Doses
It is unclear when a vaccine will be available for children as major drugmakers have yet to include them in late-stage trials. Sinovac was not directly tied to any of China's substandard vaccines, but the company has been prone to missteps.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis likewise urged Panhandle residents not to let their guard down even though the hurricane had passed, saying: "You're going to see the rivers continue to rise". He said he couldn't immediately release details. "It's unreal", said Cavin Hollyhand, 50, who left his home on a barrier island and took shelter in Mobile, Alabama, where he viewed the damage on Wednesday.

NASA's Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for GPM or IMERG, which is a NASA satellite rainfall product, estimated on September 18 at 5:30 a.m. EDT (0930 UTC), Wilfred was generating as much as 30 mm (1.18 inches) of rain per hour around the center of circulation.

Pictures show residents wading through waist-deep water, cars stranded in flooded streets, and homes entirely swamped by Wednesday's deluge. Many are impassible, they said.

At least one death, in Alabama, was blamed on the hurricane, and a half-million businesses were without electricity Thursday afternoon in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. A section of the main bridge between Pensacola and Pensacola Beach collapsed after it was hit by a barge that broke loose in the storm. Associated Press contributors include Russ Bynum in Savannah, Georgia; Sudhin Thanawala and Haleluya Hadero in Atlanta; Bobby Caina Calvan and Brendan Farrington in Tallahassee, Florida; Rebecca Santana in New Orleans; and Julie Walker in NY.

In May, the hurricane centre in Halifax warned of another active storm season, with Robichaud noting that the COVID-19 pandemic could make it hard for people to prepare for rough weather.

Eric Blake, Senior Hurricane Specialist at NOAA's National Hurricane Center in Miami, Fla. noted, "Wilfred has formed, continuing the record-setting pace of the 2020 hurricane season since it is the earliest 21st named storm on record, about 3 weeks earlier than Vince of 2005".

Tropical storm-force winds are 39 to 73 miles per hour.

Hurricane Sally, a slow-moving system pregnant with rain, finally made landfall on Wednesday, battering America's Gulf Coast with floods and wind while the West Coast burned, representing what scientists say is a one-two punch from climate change.
