Hurricane Sally 2020
Hurricane Sally made landfall on September 16, 2020 causing catastrophic damage to the Alabama and Florida coast. Sally began her journey of destruction on the coast of South Florida on September 11 beginning as a Tropical Depression. The next day she strengthened into Tropical Storm Sally over the Gulf of Mexico. The Florida Keys were met with flooding rainfall on September 12. She then moved northward over the eastern Gulf of Mexico and by September 14 Sally had intensified into a hurricane. Slowly this hurricane made its ways towards to coastline and on September 16th it strengthened to a category 2 hurricane and made landfall causing flash flooding.
And like SERVPRO always does, we banded together to go help with relief efforts and helping those in need begin their journey of recovery. SERVPRO of Oxford/Batesville/Clarksdale loaded up on September 17 and got to work. Our crews were on site for a whole month and were able to help over 20 families and a large apartment complex. We are grateful to have the opportunity to travel to these heavily affected areas and help so many people make it “Like it never even happened.”
