Florence becomes a hurricane in the Atlantic

Both benchmarks jumped earlier after the evacuation of two Gulf of Mexico oil platforms in preparation for Tropical Storm Gordon. 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.

Families filled sandbags, took patio furniture inside and stocked up on batteries and bottled water as the Gulf Coast prepared Tuesday for Tropical Storm Gordon, which was forecast to become the second hurricane to hit the region in less than a year.

Vessel traffic along the U.S. Gulf Coast on Tuesday was under restrictions ahead of Gordon.

Gordon is expected to reach hurricane strength when it hits the Gulf Coast, including coastal MS, by late Tuesday.

By early Tuesday morning, the storm's center was 230 miles east-south-east of the mouth of the MS river, with top sustained winds of 65mph, forecasters said. For 2020, it said it expected Brent to average $75 a barrel, up from its previous forecast of $55.

Flooding was also a risk. Based on the 5 pm briefing from the National Hurricane Center Santa Rosa County will begin to experience Tropical Force winds Tuesday afternoon.

George and Paulette Haines watch waves from Tropical Storm Gordon pound the beach on Monday.

"I have declared a state of emergency in advance of Tropical Storm #Gordon, making state resources and personnel available to affected areas", Mississippi Gov. Bryant said on Twitter. It was moving relatively quickly, at about 28 kph.

Heavy rain is already falling over western Florida and is expected to spread west along the coast to New Orleans.

"It's the peak of hurricane season".

A few and inconsequential weather systems have formed in the Atlantic during the 2018 hurricane season, including Tropical Storm Florence which is expected to curve northwards without impacting land.

Gordon's eye was heading to around Gulfport, Mississippi, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) in a 10 a.m. update.
