HURRICANE GORDON TO HIT MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST WEDNESDAY MORNING

Gazebo Gazette

In a statement issued by Harrison County Emergency Management:

At 800 PM EDT (0000 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Gordon was located by NOAA Doppler weather radar and an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft near latitude 26.7 North, longitude 83.4 West. Gordon is moving toward the west-northwest near 17 mph (28km/h) and a west-northwestward to northwestward motion is expected over the next 72 hours. On the forecast track, the center of Gordon will move across the eastern Gulf of Mexico tonight and Tuesday, and will approach the north-central Gulf Coast within the warning area late Tuesday or Tuesday night, and move inland over the lower Mississippi Valley on Wednesday.

This means that the deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to the east of the landfall location, where the surge will be accompanied by large waves. Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances. For information specific to your area, please see products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office.
