Tropical storm Gordon moving quickly across eastern Gulf of Mexico: NHC

Tropical Storm Gordon Forms Batters South Florida and Keys With Wind and Rain

"The combination of a unsafe storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline", the NHC forecast warns.

Tropical storm Gordon is moving quickly across the eastern Gulf of Mexico and is expected to make landfall as a hurricane along the north-central Gulf coast, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said in its latest advisory on Monday.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant declared a state of emergency as the storm bore down on his state's coast, as did Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey.

Gordon was generating winds of 105km/h on Tuesday as it steamed west-northwest at 27km/h, the National Hurricane Centre said.

As of 2 a.m. Tuesday, Gordon was about 280 miles east-southeast of the mouth of Mississippi River. Some areas may get winds as high as 73 miles per hour depending on how much the storm grows before it makes landfall. This zone is expected to witness the most severe storm effects.

Gordon was generating winds of 50 miles per hour (80 km per hour) on Sep.

Any hurricane force winds look to hold off until around Tuesday night into Wednesday mornings.

The weather will gradually improve Wednesday.

Tropical Storm Gordon has formed and is continuing to strengthen. There is also a Tropical Storm Warning from the Okaloosa-Walton County Line westward to east of Morgan City, Louisiana, including Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas. Don't drive your vehicle onto any water-covered roads in coastal and inland areas.

Gordon is expected to dispense 4 to 8 inches of rain over a large swath of the north central Gulf Coast as well as areas farther inland, through central MS and southern Arkansas.

Those bands will drop a torrential amount of water across Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle, where the hurricane center says totals could reach as much as 12 inches.

A storm surge warning was in effect for the area between Shell Beach, Louisiana, and Dauphin Island, Alabama, with predicted heights of up to 3-5 ft if the peak surge coincides with high tide.
