Gordon heads out into the Gulf; no direct impacts for Tampa Bay

Florence eyes the US coast while TWO new depressions form on the same day

Residents in parts of South Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana are being warned to prepare for tropical storm-force winds and possibly isolated tornadoes.

Gordon may strengthen to hurricane status before making landfall along the central Gulf Coast tonight bringing unsafe storm surge, heavy rain, and damaging winds.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey declared emergencies.

It was carrying maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour.

At 11 a.m., the center of Florence was located near latitude 19.7 north, longitude 42.5 west. Florence is moving west-northwest near 12 miles per hour. We should see a rather quick decay of the system as it penetrates farther inland overnight and into Wednesday morning.

Gordon is in the Gulf of Mexico, off the west coast off Florida, on Tuesday morning.

Gordon formed into a tropical storm near the Florida Keys early Monday as it lashed the southern part of the state with heavy rains and high winds.

The National Hurricane Center says it expects Gordon to strengthen into a hurricane before it reaches the north central Gulf Coast late Tuesday.

The last hurricane to strike the US was Nate last October, coming ashore in Biloxi with 120 km/h winds.

A hurricane warning remains in effect for the area from the Pearl River in MS to the Alabama-Florida border.

By Monday afternoon the storm had passed over Florida's southern tip.

"We got caught up in the undertow, and we nearly died", Armstrong told NBC affiliate WPMI of Mobile on Monday.

"There are no dunes and there's no protection, so the realty company we rented from moved us across the street and down so that we would be safe", said Robin Berry. I literally had to grab his hand and help him. Hurricane Nate was the last hurricane to strike the us, making landfall near Biloxi, Mississippi, last October.

Pensacola Water Safety Captain Jake Wilson tells WEAR-TV that the strong wind is bringing a lateral current "where it's just going to push you down the beach". "It's been a good summer, and hopefully this won't do too much damage". There were no reports of any injuries or deaths or any damages to buildings, said Alberto Moscoso, a spokesman for the Florida Division of Emergency Management.
