Sally spreads ‘heavy’ rain over the Southeast, and Teddy becomes a major hurricane on its way to Bermuda



A weakened Sally brings the risk of flooding across the Southeast on Thursday as another storm in the Atlantic gathers strength.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued its final advice to Sally early Thursday, saying the center of the storm was near Montgomery, Ala. It packed 30 mph wind with movement northeast at 12 mph.

“Tropical Depression Sally is still producing heavy rainfall over eastern Alabama and western and central Georgia,” the NHC said.
