Trump tells Gulf Coast residents to prepare for ‘extremely dangerous’ Hurricane Sally

President Trump early Wednesday warned residents of Gulf states to listen to local leaders ahead of Hurricane Sally’s landfall, saying the storm is “extremely dangerous.”
“My team and I are closely monitoring extremely dangerous Hurricane Sally. We are fully engaged with State & Local Leaders to assist the great people of Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Be ready and listen to State and Local Leaders!” Trump tweeted, tagging Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R), Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) and Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R).

Forecasters have warned the hurricane could bring up to two feet of rain and possible tornadoes as it approaches the northern Gulf, according to The Associated Press. It was initially projected to hit New Orleans, but forecasters have since shifted its predicted trajectory east.
The storm is expected to make landfall around the Alabama-Mississippi border late Tuesday to early Wednesday.
Winds are forecasted to reach 110 miles per hour by Wednesday, according to the AP.
“This is going to be historic flooding along with the historic rainfall,” National Hurricane Center senior specialist Stacy Stewart told the AP. “If people live near rivers, small streams and creeks, they need to evacuate and go somewhere else.”
Trump has issued emergency declarations for some regions of the Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, while Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has declared an emergency in the affected western counties of the state’s Panhandle.
