Tropical Storm Gordon heads for Gulf Coast Tropical Storm Gordon in gulf, moving away from Florida

Gordon formed around southern Florida on Monday before it swept across the Gulf of Mexico.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Florence will potentially threaten Bermuda in the next few days, and we will see a train of systems moving off the coast of Africa that will have the potential to develop as well.

Here is the latest forecast track and timing for Gordon.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency told South Mississippi residents to be prepared to evacuate.

Heavy rain across Florida has tapered, but additional showers and storms are possible today, embedded in the onshore flow.

Heavy rainfall from Gordon will affect the western Florida Panhandle, southwest Alabama, southern and central MS, much of eastern Louisiana and southern Arkansas, where totals could reach as high as 12 inches, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Gordon is expected to strengthen and become a hurricane.

While Northwest Florida was expected to feel relatively minimal effects from the storm, areas along the coast from Santa Rosa to Walton Counties were bracing for stronger-than-average winds and heavy rains throughout the day and into Tuesday night.

Tropical-storm force winds are lashing the Alabama and western Florida panhandle coastlines and are predicted to reach hurricane force of at least 119 km/h by the time storm makes landfall.

Its maximum sustained winds were 65 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"Basically, all the rain thats associated with the tropical storm is being pulled away from us right now", Wynn said.

In anticipation of heavy rains, the Flood Protection Authority-East (FPA) has closed 21 floodgates on the Lake Borgne Surge Barrier near New Orleans, according to a press release.

Coastal areas from the Florida Panhandle to Louisiana could experience 4-8 inches of rain, with isolated totals of 12 inches through late Thursday that could cause risky flash flooding and "life-threatening" storm surge, according to the hurricane center.

"You don't know what the intensity of the storm is going to be". Hurricane Florence was some 3,900 kilometres away from the US, and another potential storm was likely to form not far off the coast of Africa and head east.

But the storm, spinning in the open Atlantic, isn't a threat to land for the time being - although that could change next week as it approaches Bermuda. "The good part about it is the water goes down faster here", said Cazaux, who has lived in the neighborhood for 15 years.
