Hurricane Sally hit near Gulf Shores, Ala. on Wednesday as a Category 2 hurricane, and caused 377 people to require rescue in the Florida Panhandle, according to the New York Times.
Around 275,000 people are without electricity in Alabama and 240,000 Floridians are without power.
This hurricane season is the most active hurricane on record, with around 20 storms so far. The active hurricane season and the fires in the West Coast are heavily exacerbated by climate change, which will only create more severe weather conditions, according to The New York Times.
