Gordon likely to make landfall as category 1 hurricane

Gordon likely to make landfall as category 1 hurricane

Tropical Storm Gordon lashed South Florida with heavy rains and high winds on Monday and is expected to strengthen into a hurricane when it hits the central US Gulf Coast.

Authorities also issued a voluntary evacuation order for residents outside the levee protection system, which include the Venetian Isles, Lake Saint Catherine and Irish Bayou areas.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant and Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards declared states of emergency.

In Mississippi, vessels in the harbors of Biloxi and Gulfport have been ordered to evacuate by 2 p.m. Tuesday due to the risk from storm surge there. Maximum sustained winds were clocked at 45 miles per hour (75 kph).

"Rapid weakening is expected after Gordon moves inland, " the hurricane center said.

The hurricane warning was placed into effect for the area stretching from the mouth of the Pearl River in MS to the Alabama-Florida border. The storm surge for coastal Alabama will reach between two and four feet. The warning means there is danger of life-threatening inundation. In this zone, the water could rise up 3 to 5 feet above normally dry land at the coast.

"The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to the east of the landfall location, where the surge will be accompanied by large waves", the Hurricane Center said.

Gordon is expected to dissipate by Saturday somewhere in the central U.S.

The storm was lashing South Florida on Monday with high winds and heavy rains as it moved west-northwest at 16 miles per hour (26 kph).

"Gordon will not be just a coastal event, and not just wind but also water could be damaging, risky and even deadly, especially if preparations are not rushed to completion as early as possible today before tropical storm conditions arrive", said Rick Knabb, The Weather Channel's tropical weather expert.

"The main source of uncertainty in the track forecast is exactly when and to what extent Florence will make this turn", NHC hurricane specialist David Zelinsky in his forecast.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center.

Tropical showers and thunderstorms can be expected across the region starting Monday through much of Wednesday, the weather service says.

Tropical storm warnings extend to the west to around New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain and to the east over the western Florida panhandle.
