  • Tropical Storm Gordon triggers hurricane watch from Florida Panhandle to Louisiana

The National Weather Service says the tropical storm will gather strength as it heads through the Gulf of Mexico and may be at or near hurricane force as it makes landfall Tuesday night along the MS or Alabama coast.

A hurricane warning was put into effect for the mouth of the Pearl River in MS to the Alabama-Florida border. I literally had to grab his hand and help him. A storm surge warning has been issued for the area stretching from Shell Beach, Louisiana, to Dauphin Island, Alabama. It was moving west at 15 miles per hour, pushing maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour with higher gusts.Forecasters said that little change in strength was expected and that no coastal watches or warnings were in effect. According to a report by CNN, 13 million people are under a tropical storm warning as of Monday afternoon, and nearly 2 million people are under hurricane watches and storm surge warnings. Gordon will be tracking through the gulf overnight and heading toward the LA and MS coastlines for late Tuesday. A storm surge watch spreads west to the mouth of the Mississippi River and east to Navarre, FL. This storm could also produce 3-5 feet of storm surge.

Tropical storm and storm surge warnings were in effect along a long stretch of the central Gulf Coast from Morgan City, Louisiana, including Lake Pontchartrain, to the Alabama-Florida border.

In New Orleans, Mayor LaToya Cantrell issued a voluntary evacuation notice for areas outside the levee system.

The southern Gulf Coast has already been heavily impacted by this summer's so-called "red tide," in which massive algae blooms have caused waves of dead marine life to wash up along the coast, driving people from the water.

"We're asking people to do the same things that we're doing: prepare", Biloxi Mayor Andrew "FoFo" Gilich said in a statement. More than 4,000 Florida Power & Light customers lost power Monday due to weather conditions.

Gordon could make landfall on the western side of the cone, near New Orleans, the east side, near the Alabama/Mississippi border, or anywhere in between.

A few pop-up showers will be possible, while the tropical rain from Gordon will be slamming the Gulf Coast.
