Calm before the storm Tuesday; Gordon moves in Wednesday — ALERT DAY

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

Saturday morning, forecasters predicted the system would not form until it passed over Florida and entered the Gulf. In addition, all after school activities will be cancelled for Tuesday evening.

Ewbanks said: "It nearly pulled us straight underneath".

At the mouth of the Mississippi River, around the area of New Orleans, the storm could generate a surge of up to 4 feet (1.2 metres) and smaller surges could hit coastland along other parts of the Gulf Coast, the Miami-based hurricane center said.

According to reports, Hurricane Gordon threatens to spread flooding rains into the Mississippi Delta and Midwest later this week. Western Arkansas will begin to see heavier rain around this time frame.

However, Federer turned on the burners to race towards the net before flicking his return past the outside of the post. Federer's record against Kyrgios improved to 3-1 with Saturday's win, their only meeting at a Grand Slam.

"There is a non-tropical storm west of Gordon that is causing some of the wind shear", Sosnowski said. I wanted to drop by for a very quick update on our fast moving Tropical Storm in the Gulf of Mexico. The last hurricane to strike the USA was Nate last October, coming ashore in Biloxi with 75 miles per hour (120 kph) winds.

Forecasters say they still expect Tropical Storm Gordon to become a hurricane before making landfall somewhere along or near the MS coast.

The storm passed over Florida's southern tip Monday afternoon.

As what's left of Gordon heads into the Ohio Valley this weekend, it will bring another big surge of showers and storms with it. Pleasant weather returns for Thursday & Friday with highs in the low-70s. Police planned to monitor the only highway to the mainland. "Sometimes it starts pushing not only water across but debris, logs and things of that nature, which makes it very treacherous to get across", Mayor Jeff Collier said.

Pentagon to cut $300 million in aid to Pakistan

The mayor of New Orleans, LaToya Cantrell, said the city has "the pumps and the power" needed to protect residents.

Gordon, which was not forecast to be a major hurricane, was expected to weaken rapidly after moving ashore, the hurricane center said.

We're expected a volatile two-sided trade early this week as investors react to the hurricane news. It will be quieter the farther inland you live. You know you're going to flood before anyone else does.

The National Weather Service said conditions were "possible" for tornadoes in the affected parts of South Florida on Monday night.

Jurgen tells you what he wants. "And I answer the question". "I had great success last season". To the manager that finished fifth? Because he never win anything in worldwide for example...

He and his cousin, Lance, were relieved that the center of the storm was jogging more to the east. Lance Murphy, who referred to Gordon as a "party storm", said, "We just live through it and hope we can open again tomorrow". 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. A Tropical Storm Warning also remains in effect for the local area.
