  • Tropical depression may form in the Gulf of Mexico this week

In St. Tammany Parish, a line of cars reached between 20 and 25 vehicles long at times.

Florence was moving toward the west-northwest near 16 miles per hour and maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour.

Elsewhere, forecasters say, storm are expected to develop over the nation's midsection in coming days that could dump from 3 to 7 inches (8-17 centimeters) of rain in some areas.

Tropical Storm Warnings have been posted for parts of south Florida and much of the Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana coastlines ahead of Gordon. A hurricane watch means that hurricane conditions are possible.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Florence continued to gain strength over the eastern Atlantic on Monday, about 980 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands.

A Rip Current Statement has been issued for Panama City Beach warning of a high risk of rip currents through Wednesday.

"The combination of a risky storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline", the National Hurricane Center said in a statement.

"It's something to keep an eye on, for sure", said Ryan Ellis, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Raleigh.

We'll continue to monitor the progress of Tropical Storm Gordon.

Hurricane warnings are now in effect until further notice for coastal MS and tropical storm warnings remain in effect for the rest of the viewing area.

The storm's maximum sustained winds of 45 mph (75 kph) were expected to strengthen in the next 48 hours. Isolated tornadoes are possible.

According to the National Weather Service in Melbourne, the system will move across South Florida on Monday. Hence, a Flood Watch is in place for South Florida until 11 p.m. due to the potential for flooding. Gordon may travel into Arkansas by early Thursday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The storm left many businesses on Florida's Gulf Coast feeling shortchanged by the holiday weekend. The storm is moving at a speed of 15mph with maximum sustained winds of approximately 30mph and stronger gusts.
