Tropical storm Sally has left more than 550,000 people without electricity in the United States as torrential rains lashed Florida and Alabama states.
One person was killed and another was missing in Alabama, while hundreds others were rescued from the flooded areas. Pensacola town in Florida was badly hit as a part of the Bay Bridge collapsed. Fire Chief Ginny Cranor told CNN said that the four months of rain occurred in four hours in Pensacola.
“Catastrophic and life-threatening flooding continues over portions of the Florida Panhandle and southern Alabama,” the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.
