Hurricane Sally made landfall near Gulf Shores, Alabama, as a Category 2 storm just before 5 a.m. Wednesday.

The National Hurricane Center said Sally is bringing torrential rain over a coastal storm surge that will cause dangerous flooding from the Florida Panhandle to Mississippi and well inland in the days ahead.

The slow-moving hurricane finally came ashore with top winds of 105 mph.

The coast is being pummeled with sideways rain and beach-covering storm surges. More than 300,000 homes and businesses are without power.
