Tropical storm Gordon makes landfall overnight

Miami Beach tourists walk through the rain from Tropical Storm Gordon

Hurricane Gordon hasn't completely formed yet, but the weather system - which is now a tropical storm - will be upgraded to a Category 1 hurricane before making landfall in MS late Tuesday night.

With maximum sustained winds of 85 mph, the storm is about 1,305 miles east of the northern Leeward Islands and moving west-northwest at 12 mph.

Hurricane warnings are now in effect until further notice for coastal MS and Alabama and tropical storm warnings remain in effect for the rest of our viewing area. except for Lafourche and Terrebonne Parishes.

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 fatality came in Pensacola, Florida when a tree fell on a mobile home and killed a child, the National Weather Service said.

In addition to heavy rains, the Miami-based forecasting center said there is a possibility of tornadoes in MS and western Alabama, where crews have been working throughout the night to restore lost power to more than 20,000 customers, mostly in coastal areas. The company's other Gulf of Mexico facilities were unaffected by the storm, a spokeperson said.

A couple of tornadoes are possible near the Alabama and Florida coasts, the NHC said.

Forecasters were urging people along the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Florida to be wary of storm surge and flash floods.

Coastal communities such as Dauphin Island in Alabama and Shell Beach, Mississippi were among the hardest hit. Still, the southeastern part of the state remains under a tropical storm warning and residents need to be prepared for the storm to shift west, Edwards says.

"We're way up here, and I think we'll be OK", Cates said.

Alabama and parts of Florida faced strong winds and 30cm of rain could fall in some areas.
