John Cunningham, left, and Hunter Shows, right, watch the waves crash from Tropical Storm Gordon on Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018, in Dauphin Island, Ala. Gordon had been forecast to become a Category 1 hurricane prior to landfall.
The storm, which made landfall late on Tuesday, has caused minimal property damage so far, the NHC said, but a 2-year-old girl died when a tree fell on a mobile home in Pensacola, Florida, authorities said. The storm later weakened into a depression on Wednesday but remained risky, dumping rain, spawning tornadoes and kicking up heavy surf in its wake. Crews were already restoring electricity early Wednesday. The storm is then expected to turn toward Missouri and wind through the Midwest.
But the storm's impact could have been worse: Gordon gave only a glancing blow to New Orleans, where Mayor LaToya Cantrell said the city now has "the pumps and the power" needed to protect residents inside the levee protection system.
BSEE also said 266.08 million cubic feet per day (mmcfd) of natural gas output was shut on Wednesday in the Gulf, an increase of 34.08 mmcfd from Tuesday.
Governors in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana all declared states of emergency to better mobilize state resources and National Guard troops for the storm.
But Hurricane Florence, which generated sustained winds of 130 miles per hour on Wednesday, was well to the east of even Bermuda and was not expected to threaten the island until next week at the earliest. Each day's rainfall will be uneven, but the cumulative effect of numerous showers and storms over several days should be enough to spread a good one to two inch soaking over the region. But it was going out swinging: Forecasters said radar spotted possible tornados spun off by the storm overnight in southern Alabama and the Florida panhandle, and more were possible through Wednesday night in MS and western Alabama.
While the Hurricane Watch Net (HWN http://www.hwn.org/) on September 5 formally secured operations initiated ahead of Tropical Storm Gordon, which had been forecast to become a Category 1 hurricane, the HWN is keeping close watch on Hurricane Florence, now a Category 3 storm still out in the Atlantic. By dawn, any of the lingering storms will dissipate into the gulf. The heaviest rain is still lifting across the western half of Alabama and causing flooding, especially south.
