The storm is moving toward the northwest across the lower Mississippi Valley, bringing with it rain and potential flooding. "Given a tropical cyclone's strongest winds are usually are on its eastern side, that's why the NHC issued a hurricane warning for parts of the MS and Alabama coasts", The Weather Channel reports. The child died, the Sheriff's Office said, after a tree fell on top of a mobile home in Pensacola.

This satellite image is from shortly before landfall, around 1 p.m. CDT Tuesday. Hurricane Florence was some 2,400 miles away from the US, and another potential storm was likely to form not far off the coast of Africa and head east.

Authorities have yet to release the name or age of the child.

While Tropical Storm Gordon isn't as much of a threat in Bay County as it is in other areas, heavy rainfall and flooding are still of concern. "The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to the east of the landfall location, where the surge will be accompanied by large waves", the Hurricane Center said.

Smith said there's more to it than rain and flooding; it's also the unsafe rip currents and possible power outages.

The last hurricane to strike the USA was Nate, which came ashore in Biloxi, Mississippi, last October.

A storm surge covered barrier islands as the storm blew through, and some inland roadways were flooded as well. That's also about 70 miles south of Mobile, Alabama.

US oil producer Anadarko Petroleum Corp evacuated workers and shut production at two offshore oil platforms on Monday, and other companies with production and refining operations along the Gulf Coast said they were securing facilities.

The storm halted some energy production in the US Gulf, with companies evacuating 54 offshore platforms and halting 156,907 barrels-per-day of oil production and 232 million cubic feet-per-day of natural gas output.

The storm left many businesses on Florida's Gulf Coast feeling shortchanged by the holiday weekend.
