MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WKRG) — Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall has passed along a warning involving price gouging as Hurricane Sally approaches the coast.

In a statement, Marshall said, “Alabamians should be on-guard to possible price gouging and home repair fraud during and after Hurricane Sally’s passage through our state.”
