  • Florida weather flooding

The worst conditions are expected to arrive along the north central Gulf Coast by late afternoon Tuesday and, especially, Tuesday evening.

The warning covers the MS and Alabama coast, from the mouth of the Pearl River to the Florida-Alabama border, the National Hurricane Center said.

At the moment the National Hurricane Center still has Gordon strengthen to a weak category one hurricane with winds of 75 miles per hour and making landfall in South Mississippi.

Tropical Storm Gordon, which pounded South Florida with heavy rain, moved toward the Gulf Coast states, the National Hurricane Center said Tuesday.

Florence's maximum sustained winds are 70 miles per hour, and the storm is moving west-northwest at 13 miles per hour.

Based on current data, we should see landfall tomorrow night somewhere along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell says the city has "the pumps and the power" needed to protect residents from Tropical Storm Gordon.

The Florida Keys have already experienced the heavy rain and wind from the tropical storm. A storm surge warning has been issued for the area stretching from Shell Beach, Louisiana, to Dauphin Island, Alabama. Tropical storm warnings for the interior counties. Storm surge warnings have been issued there, as well. A voluntary evacuation was requested for areas that are outside levee protection.

Red flags flew over Pensacola-area beaches in Florida's Panhandle, where swimming and wading in the Gulf of Mexico was prohibited.

It is forecast to come ashore on Tuesday near the border between Louisiana and MS, and drop as much as 8 inches of rain in some areas of the US South, which is still recovering from hurricanes a year ago.

The weather will gradually improve Wednesday.

The last time there was no hurricane between July 13 and September 3, peak season, was in 2013, Klotzbach said.

Airlines including Delta, Southwest and Frontier warned that delays and flight cancellations are possible at airports near the Gulf Coast because of the storm, and that they may waive fees for itinerary changes.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Florence continues to hold steady over the eastern Atlantic, about 1,135 miles west-northwest of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
