Tropics heating up as Florence now 3rd hurricane of 2018

Tropics heating up as Florence now 3rd hurricane of 2018

Gordon formed into a tropical storm near the Florida Keys early on Monday, lashing the southern part of the state with heavy rains and high winds.

Tropical Storm Gordon made landfall late Tuesday night west of the Alabama-Mississippi border, the National Hurricane Center said. The National Hurricane Center predicted a "life-threatening" storm surge of 3 to 5 feet along parts of the central Gulf Coast.

There was also a typhoon hitting Japan's east coast overnight, with some damage to oil refineries in the Osaka region, although operator JXTG said its operations were not significantly affected.

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards declared a state of emergency, saying 200 Louisiana National Guardsmen were being deployed, along with 63 high-water trucks, 39 boats, and 4 helicopters. This area includes the Florida Panhandle, southwest Alabama, southern and central MS, southeastern and northeastern Louisiana, and southern Arkansas. A storm surge warning has been issued from Shell Beach, Louisiana to Dauphin Island, Alabama.

"Basically, all the rain thats associated with the tropical storm is being pulled away from us right now", Wynn said.

Kaepernick contends the owners violated their collective bargaining agreement with players by conspiring to keep him off teams. Kaepernick tweeted an image from the campaign with the caption, "Believe in something".

As of late Tuesday night, Gordon was about 30 miles east of Biloxi, Mississippi, with sustained winds of 70 mph. Florence's maximum sustained winds were 75 miles per hour as it moved to the west-northwest at 12 miles per hour.

Heavy rainfall from Gordon likely will affect an area from the Louisiana coast through the Florida Panhandle and inland along the storm's track, according to the hurricane center.

In Denham Springs, Mike O'Neal isn't expecting his restaurant Big Mike's Sports Bar and Grill, which flooded in 2016, to take water from Gordon, but he's concerned streets in the area will flood, preventing employees from coming to work.

The center says Gordon will bring heavy rainfall to southwest Alabama, southern and central MS, southeastern and northeastern Louisiana and southeast Arkansas through late Thursdays. Gordon won't be considered a tropical storm at that point.

We're expected a volatile two-sided trade early this week as investors react to the hurricane news.

Gordon was not the only storm being watched by forecasters. Rainfall totals of 2-5 inches are likely over Southern Alabama and MS with isolated amounts over 5 inches possible near the coast.
