Forecasters say Hurricane Sally could dump flooding rains on a path from Mississippi to the Carolinas this week after the storm makes landfall on the Gulf Coast. The National Weather Service says up to 8 inches could fall later this week across parts of Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas after Hurricane Sally comes ashore near the Mississippi-Alabama state line.
