Hurricane Sally made landfall early Wednesday near Gulf Shores, Alabama, as a Category 2 storm. The storm is pushing a surge of ocean water onto the coast and dumping torrential rain that forecasters said would cause dangerous flooding from the Florida Panhandle to Mississippi and well inland in the days ahead.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with Mayor Grover C. Robinson IV of Pensacola, Florida, which is about 50 miles east of Gulf Shores.
