Tropical storm Gordon makes landfall near Alabama-Mississippi border

STORM UPDATE: Santa Rosa County public schools early release Tuesday - South Santa Rosa News Tropical Storm Gordon in gulf, moving away from Florida
| 05 September, 2018, 15:03

Gordon won't be considered a tropical storm at that point.

Many schools in the areas were closed on Tuesday morning, and numerous districts announced their schools would remain shut on Wednesday as well.

The long-range forecast map for the storm shows it slowly turning to the northwest as it approaches Bermuda by the end of the week.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency warned of storm surges of between 3 and 5 feet (1 and 1.5 meters) and told South Mississippi residents to be prepared to evacuate.

The long answer? It's going to be cloudy, muggy and rainy for the rest of the week, but the city's highest chance of rain will be on Friday - when the storm eventually makes its way inland.

The outer rain bands of Tropical Storm Gordon are producing heavy rain and gusty winds along Florida's western panhandle.

Warnings indicate hurricane conditions (sustained winds of 74 miles per hour or higher) are expected somewhere within the specified area.

Gordon's eye was heading to around Gulfport, Mississippi, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) in a 10 a.m. update.

Gordon could drop heavy rain - generally 4 to 8 inches, but as many as 12 - from Florida's western panhandle to southern Arkansas through Thursday, the National Hurricane Center said.


"I think we've had worse in the past", Kearley's husband, Shane, said.

The center predicted total rain amounts of 4-8 inches (10-20 centimeters) in the Florida panhandle and parts of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa and IL.

Tropical storm Gordon, which has made landfall and is moving just west of the Alabama-Mississippi border, is expected to weaken to a tropical depression on Wednesday morning, the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) said. And for 2018, the post-holiday period has meteorologists closely watching two tropical storms.

Satellite footage has estimated the cyclone will strike an area north of New Orleans at about 7pm local time (1am BST).

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.

He added: "Right now Tropical Storm warnings in effect and Hurricane warnings to our east along the Mississippi Gulf Coast".

"This storm has every possibility to track further in our direction", Edwards said during a news conference Monday evening.

The storm left many businesses on Florida's Gulf Coast feeling shortchanged by the holiday weekend. "Now is the time to get your plans all set", director Ken Graham said. Hurricane Florence was some 2,400 miles (3,900 kilometers) away from the USA, and lining up behind it, another potential storm was likely to form not far off the coast of Africa.
