The US National Hurricane Center reported that additional strengthening of the Tropical Storm Gordon is possible, which means that the storm could become a hurricane before its landfall along the North-Central US Gulf Coast on Tuesday.
NHC reported that Gordon was some 90 miles (145 kilometres) south of Mobile, Alabama. There is a hurricane warning issued for the city. Maximum susteined winds were estimated to be 10 mph (110km/h)
Previously, NHC issued a hurricane warning for the territory from the mouth of the Pearl River eastward to the border between Alabama and Florida. The center also said that Gordon is expected to bring life-threatening storm surge to parts of the central Gulf Coast.
