Transcript for Lashing winds, rain prompt evacuations as Hurricane Sally takes aim
We go from you to hard hit Florida, the monster storm wreaking havoc in Pensacola where we find rob. Good morning, rob. Hey, good morning, robin. Boy, we're getting it now and really this thing has been moving so slowly getting it like this for a good six hours. Power is out in most places but behind me water shin deep where we are but we walked through waist deep water from our hotel to this spot in downtown Pensacola. We've had about five feet of surge so far and that's only going to increase as the center of this thing gets just above the precipice on the right side of the eye wall, the most dangerous side as you know and obviously getting winds gusting well over hurricane strength. There's debris on the roadway. You see the wind ripping down this usually busy intersection. A complete ghost town. We do have tree lights above us. One came down but I'm upwind of if they come down they are going that way. A hairy situation in Pensacola. I talked to the sheriff's office. They are just hunkering down awaiting this to pass. They have to wait till it gets safe to go outside. Because it is moving so soly that could be a while. Robin. It is moving slowly. Rob, please take care. Our thanks to you and to ginger
