Storm Gordon likely to become hurricane upon landfall tonight - NHC

Tropical depression may form in the Gulf of Mexico this week Potential Tropical Cyclone 7 Could Bring Heavy Labor Day Rains to Space Coast |

Gordon could be a Category 1 hurricane before it makes landfall as early as Tuesday night.

The storm left many businesses on Florida's Gulf Coast feeling shortchanged by the holiday weekend.

Much of the central Gulf Coast was under a hurricane warning late Monday as Tropical Storm Gordon, which is expected to strengthen, continued its march from the Florida Keys.

The storm's predicted track had shifted slightly east as of Monday evening, meaning Louisiana is now just outside the area under the hurricane warning.

Packing winds of 65 miles per hour, the storm is just 9 miles per hour from hurricane-strength, which it is predicted to attain before coming ashore.

Governor John Bel Edwards has declared a state of emergency in Louisiana as Tropical Storm Gordon continues making its way into the Gulf Coast.

But don't focus exclusively on the cone as a storm's impact extends far from its center.

Officials have issued a hurricane warning for a broad area stretching from the mouth of the MS to the Alabama-Florida border. Tropical storm warnings were in effect from the Okaloosa-Walton County border west to east of Morgan City, Louisiana.

Impacts on the Wiregrass will mostly likely be heavy rainfall associated with Gordon's outer bands.

Spacey and Seagal are facing potential charges in other cases now under investigation. That makes it too old to prosecute under the relevant penal code at the time.

Tropical Storm Gordon made landfall Tuesday near the border of MS and Alabama.

In southern Alabama, southern MS, and Louisiana, rain totals are predicted at 4 to 6 inches through Thursday, with up to 8 inches (20 centimetres) in some areas.

The Florida Keys have already experienced the heavy rain and wind from the tropical storm. "Evacuate immediately away from coastal storm surges if instructed by local officials".

The system would be named Gordon should it become a tropical or subtropical storm.

Forecasters are calling for two to four inches of rain. We'll increase the clouds as the day goes on and also look for a few isolated downpours after 6PM, particularly south of US-82.

Many areas in Houston saw upwards of 30 inches of rain.

"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 Hurricane Center said.

Dominic Carlucci drove back to his home on the barrier island in his Hummer, and found no damage, just a sagging wooden fence.

Highest winds were 50 miles per hour, but Hurricane Center forecasters said Gordon showed signs of becoming better organized and would likely strengthen.
