It’s Hurricane Sally now, and it’s gotten a lot stronger.
The National Hurricane Center said Sally was a Category 2 hurricane with 100 mph winds as of Monday night. Sally started the day as a 65 mph tropical storm.
And Sally could get stronger, forecasters said, adding that Sally could approach Category 3 intensity (111 mph winds and higher) before hitting the Gulf Coast.https://23dfe93e4dc90c29ec3b6a64a2d9440d.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html
