    Mayor of SMA stands out in Cry of Independence to health personnel.
    SMA
    Like all the mayors, governors and president of the republic, they held the ceremony of the CCX anniversary of the beginning of the Independence of Mexico, behind closed doors ...

    In addition to naming some of the heroes who gave us homeland such as: Ignacio Allende, Miguel Hidalgo, Josefa Ortiz, Morelos, the Aldama brothers, among others. On this occasion, the mayor of San Miguel highlighted the medical staff, asking for a "viva" for them, this year, where we have suffered the Covid-19 pandemic, he also recognized civil society and working people, ending up shouting "Long live San Miguel de Allende, long live Mexico."

    Hurricane Sally expected to bring historic flooding to Mississippi, Alabama, Florida Panhandle.
    0920_sally-aoc-sep14_974.jpg
    By Jeff Masters, Ph.D.

    Hurricane Sally weakened overnight to a category 1 hurricane with 85 mph winds, but the slow-moving storm is expected to bring historic flooding to the coasts of Mississippi, Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle on Tuesday through Thursday. A widespread area of 10 – 20 inches of rain is expected, with some pockets of 30 inches, accompanied by coastal storm surge flooding of four to seven feet. ...

    Sally is caught in a region of very weak steering currents, and is expected to move very slowly at less than 5 mph until landfall occurs, which could be any time Tuesday night through Wednesday night. The exact location of Sally’s landfall will not matter that much with respect to its chief threats, which are rainfall and storm surge. A swath of the coast including Mississippi, Alabama, and the extreme western Florida Panhandle will receive the worst of Sally’s rains and storm surge regardless of the exact track of the center. Wind damage, however, will be of greatest concern near and to the right of where Sally’s center moves ashore.
