DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - WTVY continues to monitor the latest on Hurricane Sally Tuesday morning as she creeps closer to the Northern Gulf Coast.

We’ve got reporters across the gulf coast to keep you updated on the latest.

Abby Nelson travelled with Kinsley Centers on Monday to Gulf Shores, Alabama.

There is a crew from The Weather Channel here where they are staying, at the Lodge at Gulf Shores State Park.

This is an area that received significant damage 14 years ago when Hurricane Dennis made landfall near Navarre Beach.

Just a year earlier, 15 years ago Wednesday, Hurricane Ivan made landfall near that location.

That storm took out the Pensacola Bay Bridge.

Officials say you can’t compare storms, and this one is not packing the same punch Ivan and Dennis did.

However, Sally has the potential to cause extensive flooding.

Some areas could get 25 inches of rain or more.

That’s why officials have been stressing that if you live in a low-lying area or an area prone to flooding - get out now.

Governor Kay Ivey closed beaches down Tuesday afternoon as part of State of Emergency order for the area.

All the Alabama coast is currently under a hurricane warning and a storm surge warning.
