Will Tropical Storm Gordon Hit Houston?

Oh Cool Miami Will Probably Get Tropical Rain Labor Day Weekend

The center is predicting the storm will pass over the Florida Keys Monday afternoon, then head back into the Gulf of Mexico and reach the central Gulf Coast by Tuesday night of Wednesday morning. As much as 8 inches (20 centimetres) of rain could fall in some parts of the Gulf states through late Thursday as the tropical weather moves inland toward Arkansas.

Heavy rain, gusty winds and thunderstorms are hitting South Florida as the Gulf Coast braces for looming Tropical Storm Gordon.

A Tropical Storm Warning includes the coast from the Western Florida Panhandle through Alabama and MS to Louisiana, including New Orleans, Pensacola, Mobile, Fort Walton Beach, Biloxi, and Gulfport. In this zone, the water could rise up 3 to 5 feet above normally dry land at the coast.

In its 10 a.m. Tuesday advisory, the hurricane center said the strengthening storm was about 145 miles east-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph. 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.

The storm's strong winds knocked out power in the Florida Panhandle and southern Alabama, leaving at least 30,000 people in the dark, several utility companies said.

"While there remains uncertainty on the strength, timing and track of this feature, there will be potential for heavy rainfall and flooding across portions of our region, especially late Tuesday into Wednesday". A Hurricane Watch is in effect for the Alabama and Mississippi Coasts, including Mobile, Gulf Shores, Biloxi, and Gulfport.

A storm surge covered barrier islands as the storm blew through, and some inland roadways were flooded by the rain. Persons located within these areas should take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water and the potential for other risky conditions.

"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. Highest winds had increased to 50 miles per hour, and the National Hurricane Center said Gordon could be near hurricane strength at landfall Tuesday night.

A slow-moving storm system is causing heavy rain and flooding from Kansas to IL.

Mayors of barrier islands in the storm's path warned that their communities might get cut off from the mainland.

Separately, Tropical Storm Florence continues to hold steady over the eastern Atlantic.
