The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the storm is expected to move away from the southwestern Florida coast and reach coastal MS and Louisiana by late Tuesday.

Tropical storm and storm surge warnings were in effect along a long stretch of the central Gulf Coast from Morgan City, Louisiana, including Lake Pontchartrain, to the Alabama-Florida border.

The southern Gulf Coast has already been heavily impacted by this summer's so-called "red tide," in which massive algae blooms have caused waves of dead marine life to wash up along the coast, driving people from the water.

Gordon was generating winds of 50 miles per hour (80 km per hour) on Monday as it steamed west-northwest at 16 mph (27 kph), the National Hurricane Center said.

A hurricane warning was in effect Tuesday morning for all of coastal MS and Alabama, with a tropical storm warning reaching to Morgan City, Louisiana, and Florida's Okaloosa-Walton county line.

Tropical Storm warnings are also in effect for the coasts of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. The storm is expected to reach hurricane strength when it hits the Gulf Coast, including coastal MS, by late Tuesday. Still, the southeastern part of the state remains under a tropical storm warning and residents need to be prepared for the storm to shift west, Edwards said.

On Monday night, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell urged some residents to evacuate ahead of Tropical Storm Gordon.

UPDATE 10:11 a.m.: The National Weather Service has issued a significant weather advisory for Palm Beach County as gust showers move through areas including Boca Raton. Chances that the wave will turn into a tropical storm remain low.

Meanwhile, no coastal watches or warnings are in effect for Tropical Storm Florence.

The National Weather Service said Monday that Naples, Marco Island, and Everglades City in Florida were among the locations that could expect hazardous weather over the next 36 hours.

Flooding was also a high risk for the areas affected by the storm, including portions of southeast Louisiana north of Interstate 10 and southwest MS west of Interstate 55. Another tropical storm, dubbed Florence, is churning roughly 1,500 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

They include Chokoloskee to Bonita Beach and Alabama-Florida Border to Okaloosa-Walton County Line. It had maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour, with the system moving northwest at 14 miles per hour. The storm is on track to continue moving west-northwest toward the island of Bermuda through Thursday morning. The Hurricane Center said isolated amounts could reach a foot, and that areas of flash flooding were expected between Tuesday and Wednesday.
