Hurricane Sally Strengthens In Gulf

Hurricane and storm surge warnings are in effect for portions of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama along the Gulf coast as a strengthening Hurricane Sally approaches. 

The storm is now a Category 2 hurricane with winds of 100 m.p.h. The latest forecast has the storm coming ashore near the Mississippi-Alabama line.

President Trump is keeping a watchful eye on Hurricane Sally. The chief executive tweeted his administration is monitoring the "extremely dangerous" category two storm as it nears the Gulf Coast. Trump explained they are "fully engaged" with local leaders to lend a hand to those living in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. Sally is expected to make landfall Tuesday night or early Wednesday, and hurricane warnings are in effect for coastal areas in those states and Florida.
