Hurricane Sally has left widespread devastation in its wake after battering southern Alabama and the Floridapanhandle with 105mph winds, a surge of seawater and more than 2 feet of rain, killing at least two people and leaving more than a half-million homes and businesses in the dark.

Dramatic drone footage has emerged showing the scale of the damage caused by Sally in multiple states, including the Gulf Coast of Alabama, the Florida panhandle and coastal Georgia. 

Besides the substantial harm inflicted on property and infrastructure in the region, Sally also claimed at least two lives: one in Alabama and one in Georgia.  



And now, a tropical depression has formed in the Gulf Coast and is expected to strengthen to a tropical storm and take aim at coastal Texas in the coming days.

Video from hard-hit Pensacola, Florida, showed at least 30 sailboats, fishing boats and other vessels clumped together in a mass of fiberglass hulls and broken docks at a downtown marina. Some boats rested atop sunken ones. 

A section of the main bridge between Pensacola and Pensacola Beach collapsed after it was hit by a barge that broke loose during the storm. 

Sally’s floodwaters had coursed through downtown streets,washing  away sections of roads, and lapped at car door handles on Wednesday before receding. Authorities went door-to-door to check on residents and warn them they were not out of danger. 

'Please, please, we’re not out of the woods even if we’ve got beautiful skies today,' said Escambia County emergency manager Eric Gilmore.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis urged Panhandle residents not to let their guard down. 'You’re going to see the rivers continue to rise,' DeSantis said after an aerial tour of the Panhandle.

Rescuers on the Gulf Coast used boats and high-water vehicles Thursday to reach people cut off by floodwaters in the aftermath of Hurricane Sally, even as a second round of flooding took shape along rivers and creeks swollen by the storm’s heavy rains.

Crews carried out at least 400 rescues in Escambia County, Florida, by such means as high-water vehicles, boats and water scooters, authorities said. Rescuers focused their efforts Thursday on Innerarity Point, a narrow strip of land close to Pensacola that is home to waterfront homes and businesses. Floodwaters covered the only road out.

Richard Wittig and his family were among scores of people hemmed in by floodwaters on an island at the tip of the point. Two generators powered his house.
