    Tropical storm warnings were announced for parts of South Florida and parts of the northern Gulf Coast in the United States, as the Tropical Storm Gordon is expected to make its landfall along the Gulf Coast and possibly strengthen to hurricane.

    The US National Hurricane Center has issued a hurricane warning for the territory from the mouth of the Pearl River eastward to the border between Alabama and Florida as the Tropical Storm Gordon is to make its landfall along the Gulf Coast. The storm is expected to become a hurricane before it makes its landfall on Tuesday night.

    ​Also, a hurricane watch was posted for coastal areas of Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Florida, which means that there is a possibility of the hurricane conditions within the next 48 hours.
