  • An Alabama resident captured video of a giant alligator swimming outside her home.

Hurricane Sally appears to have brought more than fierce winds, flooding, and a dangerous storm surge.

Alabama resident Tina Bennett captured video of a giant alligator swimming in the water outside her home in Gulf Shores on Wednesday.

Rivers swollen by Hurricane Sally threatened Thursday with aggravate hardships of some neighbors in the northeast strip of Florida and southern Alabama.

Debris from the storm was expected to dump up to 30 centimeters (1 foot) of water and carry flood risk to Georgia and the Carolina.

Residents on the coast, meanwhile, were seeing how to begin recovery after a storm that turned streets into rivers, ripped off roofs, cut off power to hundreds of thousands and killed at least one person.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis warned residents and visitors in flooded areas to remain vigilant as the hurricane’s water receded, as downpours further north were expected to cause overflows in rivers in the northeastern part of the state. in the coming days.

“So this is like the opening salvo, but there is going to be more to deal with,” DeSantis said Wednesday at a news conference in Tallahassee.

At least one person died due to the hurricane.

Orange Beach, Alabama Mayor Tonny Kennon told The Associated Press that one person from the popular resort resort had died and another was missing. He could not publish more details yet, he noted.

Sally made landfall near Gulf Shores, Alabama, as a powerful hurricane with winds of 165 km / h (105 mph). It moved slowly, compounding the effect of the showers. More than 2 feet (61 centimeters) fell at Naval Airfield Pensacola and the water reached nearly 3 feet (1 meter) on the streets of downtown Pensacola, according to the National Weather Service.

Some Pensacola streets looked like rivers. The water flooded parked cars before pulling out.

A replica of the caravel La Niña, which was part of Christopher Columbus’s first expedition to America, had disappeared from its mooring point at the Pensacola pier, according to police. The ship was later seen stranded in the center of town, according to the Pensacola News Journal.

The system downgraded to a tropical storm Wednesday night and gained some speed. By Thursday morning it was producing torrential rains in the state of Alabama and western and central Georgia. Forecasters warned of the risk of tornadoes Thursday in south Georgia and north Florida.

More than 22,000 homes and businesses in Georgia were without power at dawn, according to the site poweroutages.us. The media reported trees downed in Georgia in the wake of the storm’s debris. In Clayton County, firefighters asked people to avoid areas where power lines had been downed.

The meteor was moving through southeastern Alabama, crossing central Georgia on Thursday and arriving in South Carolina on Thursday night, according to the National Hurricane Center. Flash floods and overflows were possible in those states.

More than half a million businesses and homes were without power in Alabama and Florida, according to the website poweroutages.us. Many faced delays before recovering service. “We do not want to hide this: it will go long,” said a power company on social media.

To make matters worse, Alabama’s Tina Bennett recorded a chilling video of a giant ciman swimming in the water right outside her home in Gulf Shores on Wednesday.

“My God, this is outside our window!” Exclaimed Bennett in a video posted on Twitter by WKRG-TV meteorologist Thomas Geboy. “It’s a 10 or 12 foot alligator!”
