Lessons learned from Hurricane Sally.

My mother and brother in law live in Ft Morgan AL and got a bullseye hit from the hurricane. It came in as a cat 2 with winds around 90 to 100 so not a total monster but I learned a few things I did not know. First even with weather reports hurricanes can take you by surprise.
