Tropical Storm Gordon expected to be a hurricane
Tropical Storm Gordon continues to strengthen out in the Gulf. As of 5am it had maximum sustained winds of 65mph, and is expected to be a hurricane when it makes landfall with the northern gulf coast later this evening. Gordon brought a lot of rain to our area, washing out a lot of Labor Day plans in South Florida. It’s also a major concern for those concerned about the water level in Lake Okeechobee.

Meanwhile Tropical Storm Florence is almost a hurricane, with 70mph winds. It’s moving to the west, northwest and is not expected to be a threat to Florida. Another tropical wave is moving off the coast of Africa. It could develop into a tropical depression by the end of the week.
