TIFTON — Hurricane Sally is expected to bring rain to the Tift area after landfall.
According to Tift County Emergency Management Agency Director Vickie Hickman, if the storm stays on the current track, it will mainly be a rain event for the area.
She said her office will continue monitoring the storm to see if there are any changes in its projected track.
According to the National Weather Service, Sally has slowed significantly during the last 12 hours and it is expected to make a northward turn, making landfall in the early hours of Wednesday, Sept. 16. The NWS website states the biggest threats to the impact area will be rain and a possible tornado.
Hickman said one thing people can do to get ready for the storm is make sure any storm drains are cleared so storm water won’t back up.
