Alabama resident Tina Bennett filmed a giant alligator floating in the water near her home in Gulf Shores.

“Oh my God, he's outside our window,” Bennett exclaims in the video. "This is a 10- or 12-foot (3-3,6 m) alligator."

A massive reptile is another reason not to leave the house until the flood recedes.

“There are not only collapsed power lines, but also wild animals,” wrote WKRG-TV meteorologist Thomas Geboy.

An eel was caught floating on the side of a highway in Orange Beach, Alabama, later that day, according to reporter Brittany Decker.

“This is another typical Wednesday of 2020,” the journalists wrote.

According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), Sally came ashore at 4:45 am CST near Gulf Shores as a Category 2 hurricane.

He brought heavy rains. At least eight roads in southern Alabama and Florida are expected to experience severe flooding.

The National Weather Service has warned that some of the ridges could break record-breaking ones that could flood bridges and houses.

In Orange Beach, around 50 people were rescued from flooded homes and placed in shelters, according to Mayor Tony Kennon.

“We have a few people we just couldn't get to because of the high water level,” Cannon said. “But they are safe in their homes. As soon as the water recedes, we will save them. "

According to the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the state is home to 93 native reptile species, including 12 lizards, 49 snakes, 31 turtles and the American alligator.


At the latest, one person died in Hurricane Sally. Orange Beach authorities confirmed the death and said another person was missing. The death occurred in the Back Bay Orange Beach area and was related to water, the official said. Additional information about the victim has not yet been published, writes Dailybeast.
