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

Gordon is the first tropical system to impact Northwest Florida since hurricane season began June 1.

"Then, eventually, by tomorrow morning moving well north into Jackson and then further north beyond that into Thursday and Friday".

Storm surge of 1 to 5 feet will be possible along the MS and southeastern Louisiana coastline near landfall.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency warned in a Tuesday update that tornadoes will be possible Tuesday afternoon through the evening.

L. J. Cazaux moved his boat to a nearby lot of elevated land before the rain started in Venetian Isles.

Trump says to keep Attorney General Jeff Sessions until November
Some Republican lawmakers have predicted Trump would replace Sessions, a former USA senator, after the November 6 elections. He charged that Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched".

"If you live in the coastal counties, especially in surge- and flood-prone areas, it is imperative that you get to a safe place by early afternoon and stay there through Wednesday morning".

Gordon will make a direct and impactful landfall along the Gulf Coast Monday night, bringing hurricane force winds, storm surge, and up to 200 mm of rain to parts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Florence has become a hurricane in the Eastern Atlantic, and this system is expected to turn northwest into the central Atlantic over the coming days. If Gordon's wind speeds reach 74 miles per hour (119 km/h), the storm will be classified as a hurricane, according to the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

Earlier, NHC said that Gordon strengthened some in the final hours as it neared the central Gulf Coast, clocking top sustained winds of 110 kph.

A hurricane warning is in effect from the mouth of Mississippi's Pearl River to the border between Florida and Alabama. He elevated his house off the ground after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and has food, water and two generators.

In Mississippi, vessels in the harbors of Biloxi and Gulfport were ordered to evacuate by Tuesday due to the risk from storm surge there. Dry air has been struggling with dry air and this dry Saharan Air Layer can negatively impact tropical cyclones by fostering enhanced cold downdrafts and lowering the convective available potential energy (CAPE) within tropical cyclones.

Petrol, diesel prices hit new highs, rise for 9th consecutive day
The US sanctions on Iran is not the only reason for India to be anxious about a possible spike in petrol and diesel prices. He also said that the factors responsible for drop in production of crude oil have caused a spike in fuel prices in India.

MS shut down a dozen Gulf Coast casinos as the storm neared.

Sea levels could rise as much as 5 feet (1.5 m) from Shell Beach, Louisiana, to Dauphin Island, Alabama, forecasters said. "Now is the time to get your plans all set", he said.

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.

Off to the east coast of Florida, storms are developing.
