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

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.

- Gordon is moving on and away from Tampa Bay. Current spaghetti forecast models indicate that storm will spin off to sea.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency warned of storm surges of between 3 and 5 feet (1 and 1.5 meters) and told South Mississippi residents to be prepared to evacuate.

Heavy rain across Florida has tapered, but additional showers and storms are possible today, embedded in the onshore flow. It will be quieter the farther inland you live.

The National Hurricane Center says the core of Tropical Storm Gordon was still about 75 miles southeast of Biloxi, Mississippi as of 7 p.m. CDT Tuesday. That being said, Florence will continue to move west-northwest and could get out of this area and into more favourable conditions.

The season's third hurricane of the Atlantic season formed Tuesday morning as Florence strengthened into a Category 1 storm with sustained winds of 75 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"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.

The storm left many businesses on Florida's Gulf Coast feeling shortchanged by the holiday weekend.

The latest change in the warnings are Lafourche, Terrebonne and Assumption parishes have been dropped from the tropical storm warning. The outages primarily affected Alabama, with cuts also reported around the western edge of the Florida Panhandle around Pensacola as well as in Mississippi.

Gordon is predicted to hit near the Louisiana/Mississippi border late on Tuesday or early Wednesday, with the hurricane warning stretching to the Alabama-Florida border. Levee overtopping and breaches at these locations in 2005 led to devastating flooding from Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward, the city's eastern swath and in St. Bernard Parish. In this scenario, the storm could be forced west and move toward the eastern US coast.

The storm's predicted track had shifted slightly east as of Monday evening, meaning Louisiana is now just outside the area under the hurricane warning.

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