Tropical Storm Gordon track expected to bring winds to Sebastian, Vero Beach

Tropical storm Gordon is moving quickly across the eastern Gulf of Mexico and is expected to make landfall as a hurricane along the north-central Gulf coast, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said in its latest advisory on Monday.

The hurricane warning was placed into effect for the area stretching from the mouth of the Pearl River in MS to the Alabama-Florida border. I literally had to grab his hand and help him. A Storm Surge Watch is in effect for a portion of the Mississippi-Alabama border. "It's been a good summer, and hopefully this won't do too much damage".

Both radar observations along with Hurricane Hunter data has shown a steady increase in strength and organization over the past 12 hours and winds are now sustained at 50 MPH.

As of 2 p.m. ET, Tropical Storm Gordon was located about 15 miles west-northwest of Marco Island, Florida, moving west-northwest at 16 mph.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center.

Meteorologists were also tracking Tropical Storm Florence Monday, which was moving west with sustained winds of almost 70 mph about 1,400 miles east of the Lesser Antilles islands.

Tropical Storm Gordon has left many businesses on Florida's Gulf Coast feeling shortchanged by the holiday weekend.

In New Orleans, a voluntary evacuation order is in effect for people who live in neighborhoods that are not protected by levees.

New Orleans director of emergency preparedness Collin Arnold says the storm has the potential to turn into a "low-level hurricane" with potential winds of up to 70 miles per hour (113 kph).

In Louisiana, Gov. John Bel Edwards declared a state of emergency Monday and said 200 National Guard troops will be deployed to southeastern Louisiana. Many replies to various National Weather Service accounts or other outlets with their pleas that the storm veer spontaneously away, as the Gulf coast is still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

The National Weather Service said Naples, Marco Island, and Everglades City also could expect hazardous weather on Monday. A storm surge warning has been issued for the area stretching from Shell Beach, Louisiana, to Dauphin Island, Alabama.

The storm's predicted track had shifted slightly east as of Monday evening, meaning Louisiana is now just outside the area under the hurricane warning.

Tropical storm warnings extend to the west to around New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain and to the east over the western Florida panhandle.
