Tropical Storm Gordon in gulf, moving away from Florida Gordon Is Forecast To Hit Northern Gulf Coast As A Hurricane Tuesday Night

Gordon has begun hurling tropical storm-force winds onshore along the Alabama and western Florida Panhandle coastline. The name and age were not released. No one else inside the home was injured, spokeswoman Amber Southard said.

The storm was going out swinging: Forecasters said radar spotted possible tornadoes spun off by the storm overnight in southern Alabama and the Florida panhandle, and more were possible through Wednesday night in MS and western Alabama.

Escambia county received 10 calls overnight for downed trees in roadways, along with multiple reports of arcing power lines as the storm blew through with peak gusts of 98 km/h.

The Category 3 hurricane's maximum sustained winds Wednesday morning are estimated to be 120 miles per hour.

Officials predict more rain across the Mississippi Coast as Gordon moves inward. As Gordon moves away from Floridas west coast, forecasters said it will pull deep tropical moisture into the region during the afternoon, producing scattered thunderstorms that will gradually dissipate later in the evening.

Flash flood warnings went into effect over parts of the western Florida panhandle and southern Alabama.

"The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to the east of the landfall location, where the surge will be accompanied by large waves", the center said.

"It was just bad", she said, adding that the sounds were nearly indistinguishable from the storm's howling winds. City Hall and government offices closed Tuesday and will only be opened half day on Wednesday.

The gates are in Orleans and St. Bernard parishes, primarily along the Industrial Canal and susceptible to high-tide conditions if not closed, the city said.

Airlines including Delta, Southwest and Frontier warned that delays and flight cancellations were possible at airports near the Gulf Coast because of the storm, and that they may waive fees for itinerary changes.

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".
