Hurricane Sally made landfall on the southern coast of the US, the National Hurricane Center said Wednesday, hitting Gulf Shores, Alabama.

The Category 2 storm, packing sustained winds of up to 105 miles (165 kilometers) per hour, was likely to cause “catastrophic and life-threatening flooding” in coastal areas, the Miami-based center said.
