Storm Gordon making landfall west of Alabama-Mississippi border -NHC

Sept 4 (Reuters) - Tropical storm Gordon was making landfall just west of the Alabama-Mississippi border, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in its latest advisory on Tuesday.

Gordon was located about 35 miles (55 kilometers) south-southwest of Mobile, Alabama and was packing maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 km/h), the Miami-based weather forecaster said.

“Rapid weakening is forecast after Gordon moves inland, and is forecast to become a tropical depression on Wednesday,” the NHC added (Reporting by Nallur Sethuraman and Vijaykumar Vedala in Bengaluru Editing by Joseph Radford)
