It seems that Hurricane Sally has brought not only fierce winds, floods and dangerous storms.
Alabama resident Tina Bennett shot a video of a giant alligator swimming in the water right in front of her home in Shores Bay on Wednesday.
“Oh my God, this is out of our window!” exclaimed Bennett in a video posted on Twitter by WKRG-TV meteorologist Thomas Geboy. “It’s a 10 or 12 foot alligator!”

Geboy noted that the massive reptile was another reason to take refuge on the spot while the flooded waters receded.
“Not only are power lines broken, but wildlife has been displaced,”
In addition to the gator, an eel was also caught swimming on the side of a highway in Orange Beach, Alabama, later in the day, according to W. Birmingham WVTM-TV reporter Brittany Decker.
“Just a typical Wednesday in 2020,” the station wrote.
Sally made the land at 4:45 a.m. CDT near Shores Bay as a Category 2 storm with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).
Sally brought rain, measured in feet, killed at least one person and forced the rescue of hundreds. At least eight waterways in southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle are expected to reach high levels of flooding by Thursday.

The National Weather Service has warned that some of the ridges could break records, sink bridges and flood homes.
In Orange Beach, at least 50 people were rescued from flooded homes and taken to shelters, Mayor Tony Cannon said.
“We have a few people we just couldn’t reach because the water is so high,” Cannon said. “But they are safe in their homes. Once the water recedes, we will save them. ”
