GULF SHORES, Ala. (WSFA) - Wednesday marks one week since Hurricane Sally hit Alabama’s Gulf Coast.

On Wednesday, we learned it will be another week before visitors can return.

Gulf Shores Mayor Robert Craft says both Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have decided to postpone allowing guests back until Oct. 2.

“That gives us another week from this weekend to try to get our world cleaned up. Just bringing the traffic back down here is a problem as we see all these big trucks run around and everything we’re trying to do. That can be dangerous, but it also takes away from us fixing our residence," Craft said.
