Hurricane Sally made landfall near Gulf Shores, AL as a Category 2 storm and moved through the Florida Panhandle this morning. 

WOWB/Brewton, AL (WOW Radio) serves the Pensacola and Florida Gulf Coast. Station manager Larry Steelman checks in with HisAir, “Right now we’ve lost power and internet at our studios. Our rural tower site is 70 miles north and roads/weather won’t allow for us to get there today. Know that the power and internet is out there too. We have a back up diesel generator but it is out of service and the repairman is/was scheduled to come out late next week. So not sure how long it will take to get back on the air — depends mainly on the 2 power companies repairing services.
Would appreciate prayers, as our Fall Fundraiser is scheduled to start next Tuesday. We have some concerns about losing part of the time to promote before hand. But we’re also use to Satan fighting us before and during fundraisers. But he’s a thief and liar. And we’ve seen so many times at the ministry the Lord making Romans 8:28 real for us. It’s never easy going through storms – no matter if it’s a hurricane or some other type – but we’re thankful the Lord is with us when we’re in one and He’s always takes us through them. But again, prayers for us would be appreciated as we’ve gone through Sally and having to deal with the aftermath now.”
