Tropical Storm Gordon heads for Gulf Coast

The National Hurricane Center has continued a Hurricane Warning for the Alabama & Mississippi Gulf Coasts through Wednesday, with a Tropical Storm Warning along the coast of Louisiana & Florida. The system did not reach the hurricane status previously forecast, however, warnings of "life-threatening" conditions remain in effect for areas expected to be hit with rapidly rising storm surges between MS and Alabama.

Gordon was generating winds of 65 miles per hour (105 km per hour) on Tuesday as it steamed west-northwest at 17 mph, the National Hurricane Center said. It was moving northwest at 15 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Gordon remains tropical storm in the 5pm advisory, now with 60kt sustained winds as it approaches landfall over the central Gulf Coast.

"You don't know what the intensity of the storm is going to be".

"The weather will be pretty seasonable for this time for this time of year", McGraw said.

Governor Phil Bryant, MEMA Executive Director Gregory Michel and Hancock County Emergency Management Director Brian Adam are holding a press conference to update the preparedness and response efforts of Tropical Storm Gordon from state and local leadership. The Coast Guard has warned that three ports nearby may need to be closed, including New Orleans, and Gulfport and Pascagoula in Mississippi.

In anticipation, the center announced a storm surge warning, meaning there is "a danger of life-threatening inundation", along the coast from Louisiana to Florida, according to the NHC's morning briefing.

There was also a typhoon hitting Japan's east coast overnight, with some damage to oil refineries in the Osaka region, although operator JXTG said its operations were not significantly affected.

The National Hurricane Center said it is way too early to know if either of those storms will have any impact on land.

A hurricane warning is in effect from the mouth of Mississippi's Pearl River to the border between Florida and Alabama.

"I'm asking all residents to do their part in getting ready for this storm", New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said in a statement. But authorities issued a voluntary evacuation order for areas outside the city's levee protection system, including the Venetian Isles, Lake Saint Catherine and Irish Bayou areas. They were likening conditions to 2017's Hurricane Nate, which was mostly a rainmaker by the time it got there.
