We live in Birmingham and Dennis is supposed to impact us between 9:00 PM and 6:00AM in the morning. Dennis will past to our west with Hurricane winds less than 50 miles away and Tropical winds here in Birmingham with gusts to 80 MPH. They are predicting 10 to 20" of rain here.
Last September Ivan left 900,000 people in Alabama without power. It took 7 days to get everybody turned back on.. I am sure we will have similar results this year.
