  • STORM UPDATE: Santa Rosa County public schools early release Tuesday - South Santa Rosa News

There is lingering tropical moisture that Gordon left behind, and as the day progresses and heats up after sunrise, it will create rain storms.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Florence will potentially threaten Bermuda in the next few days, and we will see a train of systems moving off the coast of Africa that will have the potential to develop as well. Current spaghetti forecast models indicate that storm will spin off to sea.

Brian E. Hastings, the director of the Alabama Emergency Management Agency, said: "Alabama is postured for a coastal wind and water event, but the key will be preparation of our citizens". Rapid weakening is expected after Gordon moves inland.

Tropical Storm Gordon made landfall on Tuesday just west of the Alabama-Mississippi border, lashing the U.S. Gulf Coast with high winds and heavy rain, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said. Gordon is expected to reach shore later today near the border between Louisiana and Mississippi.

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey and Mississippi's governor have declared states of emergency, ahead of the expected landfall of Tropical Storm Gordon.

A state of emergency has been declared in Louisiana and MS as Tropical Storm Gordon lashes the US Gulf Coast.

"We're expecting an increase in winds", Miller said in a telephone interview.

U.S. oil producer Anadarko Petroleum Corp on Monday evacuated workers and shut production at two offshore oil platforms, and other companies with production and refining operations along the Gulf Coast said they were securing facilities.

A hurricane warning is in effect for the mouth of the Pearl River in MS to the Alabama-Florida border.

Four to eight inches of rain is expected over over the western Florida Panhandle, southwest Alabama, southern and central MS, southeastern and northeastern Louisiana, and southern Arkansas, with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches through late Thursday. The National Hurricane Center is predicting a "life-threatening" storm surge along parts of the central Gulf Coast.

In Mississippi, vessels in the harbors of Biloxi and Gulfport were ordered to evacuate by 2 p.m. Tuesday due to the risk from storm surge there. A storm surge warning has been issued from Shell Beach, Louisiana to Dauphin Island, Alabama. "Now is the time to get your plans all set", he said. Hurricane Florence was some 2,400 miles (3,900 kilometers) away from the USA, and lining up behind it, another potential storm was likely to form not far off the coast of Africa.

"This storm has every possibility to track further in our direction", Edwards said during a news conference Monday evening.

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