Blamed in baby's death, weakening Gordon spreads rain inland

"Fortunately we had some power crews staged in Hattiesburg, Ms, early afternoon yesterday, so the utility companies will be working together to getting peoples power restored back as quickly as possible".

Parts of the panhandle had received more than 10 inches (25 centimeters) in 24 hours as of midday Wednesday.

In a forecast discussion on Wednesday, the hurricane center said that although the storm was weakening, "heavy rainfall" would likely be recorded from the Florida Panhandle to IL and Iowa. After landfall the storm will continue west north-west as it dissipates, but should be bringing more rain and winds into the county later Thursday, although rainfall is expected throughout the week with slow-moving thunderstorms.

The National Hurricane Center is no longer issuing advisories on Gordon.

Katrina cut the narrow island in half more than a decade ago, but John Berry wasn't very anxious about Gordon.

About 20 miles away on the mainland, dozens of brightly colored shrimp boats were tied up to docks in Bayou La Batre, a seafood town that processes oysters, shrimp and crabs from across the Gulf of Mexico. "You don't want to take it lightly, of course", MacDonald said.

"We ducked a punch", said Mayor Andrew Gilich of Biloxi, whose office noted that he is a former boxer.

Chinese billionaire Richard Liu released after Minnesota arrest
China's Foreign Ministry said Monday it had launched an investigation into the circumstances of Liu's arrest . The arrest comes shortly after Liu was in the spotlight for another incident involving sexual misconduct.

"We are happy to report that hotels, casinos, attractions and restaurants have resumed business as usual", Milton Segarra, CEO of the tourism organization Visit Mississippi Gulf Coast, said in a Wednesday news release.

Governors in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana all declared states of emergency to better mobilize state resources and National Guard troops for the storm.

A storm surge covered barrier islands as the storm blew through, and some inland roadways were flooded as well.

However, despite that good news, Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA and the Auto Club Group, offered a warning about the impact a major storm can have on oil production and gas prices.

Even as Gordon's coastal threat faded Wednesday, the hurricane center was also tracking another storm far out in the Atlantic.

It's way too early to know if either of those storms will have any impact on land, but Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham said attention should be paid: "It's the peak of hurricane season".
