Gordon now a tropical depression, flash flooding possible into the heartland


Additionally the National Hurricane Center is reporting Gordon is expected to bring life-threatening storm surges to portions of the central Gulf Coast, with surge warnings issued for the mouth of the Pearl River to the Mississippi-Alabama border.

The NHC's hurricane warning covers all of coastal MS and Alabama, with a tropical storm warning reaching to Morgan City, Alabama, and Florida's Okaloosa-Walton County Line. The first is its speed - Gordon is moving relatively fast at 17 miles per hour and is losing how much warm Gulf water is has to grow stronger.

"We're a beach coffee shop, and if people can't go to the beach, then we won't get any customers".
