Stories from the storm

Hurricane Sally, which looked like it was going to be Louisiana’s problem, ended up becoming Northwest Florida’s. The Category 2 storm crawled onshore west of Navarre early on the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 16 flooding homes, roads and rivers with storm surge and, in many cases, around a foot of rain.

At the worst of it, first responders were rescuing dozens of people stranded in submerged homes and cars. Navarre Beach was almost completely underwater, and power outages were wide- spread from Okaloosa through Escambia counties.
