First Hurricane

Tropical Storm Hanna makes Landfall in Mobile, AL. The Pensacola Airport across the street from us reported wind gusts of up to 66 mph at times. Hanna also dropped 4 inches of rain in a 3-hour time span. I remember the parking lot flooding and the tree outside the bedroom window smacking up against it with the strong wind gusts. One death resulted from this storm. A 20-year-old man drowns from the rip currents at the Pensacola Beach.
