Summary

(AP) — Hundreds of thousands of people were still without power Friday along the Alabama coast and the Florida Panhandle in the aftermath of Hurricane Sally as officials assessed millions of dollars in damage that included a broken bridge in Pensacola and ships thrown onto dry land.While the cleanup pressed on, the record-shattering hurricane season notched another milestone: Forecasters ran out of traditional names for storms, forcing them to begin using the Greek alphabet for only the second time since the 1950s.In Loxley, Alabama, Catherine Williams lost power and some of her roof to Sally. We had piles of sand everywhere, plies of debris everywhere, but the roads were open,” Mayor Ken Thomas said.With the dunes that provide some protection to the island gone, Thomas said people will be nervous for the rest of the storm season.“There’s a hurricane for everyone out there,” he said.Escambia County, which includes Pensacola, estimated that Sally caused at least $21 million in damage to public infrastructure such as roads and drainage.
