Gordon, never a hurricane, killed child in mobile home

  • Tropical Storm Gordon track expected to bring winds to Sebastian, Vero Beach

"Right now, we are optimistic that we won't have any significant impacts from Gordon", said Sanchez, who does not expect homes to flood and added the storm "in no way" compares to Harvey. That is 4 miles per hour below what's needed for a tropical cyclone to be classified as a Category 1 hurricane.

The only death reported as of Wednesday afternoon was the child killed late Tuesday when a large oak tree branch fell onto a mobile home in Pensacola, Florida. The storm weakened into a depression Wednesday but remained risky, dumping rain, spawning possible tornadoes and kicking up heavy surf in its wake. Power was restored for all of those households by noon Wednesday. The storm is then expected to turn toward Missouri and wind through the Midwest. The storm system is now being tracked by the Storm Prediction Center.

Energy companies and port operators along the Gulf Coast took steps to resume normal operations after Gordon shut 9 percent of the region's oil and natural gas production. And in Kansas, where hundreds of people were rescued from flash flooding this week, the governor declared a state of emergency in several counties. Forecasters said radar spotted possible tornados spun off by the storm overnight in southern Alabama and the Florida panhandle. Each day's rainfall will be uneven, but the cumulative effect of numerous showers and storms over several days should be enough to spread a good one to two inch soaking over the region. "Sometimes it starts pushing not only water across but debris, logs and things of that nature, which makes it very treacherous to get across", said Jeff Collier, mayor of Dauphin Island, Alabama.

Stephens cruises past Mertens and into U.S. Open quarters
Cilic appeared to be coasting after taking the first set and opening a 4-2 lead in the second. "She has big spin on the forehand". However, one of Nishikori's wins came in the semi-finals in NY in 2014 when the Japanese star finished runner-up to Marin Cilic.

While Louisiana residents are bracing for what could become a hurricane, emergency officials in Harris County and the City of Houston are also planning for Topical Storm Gordon.

Airlines including Delta, Southwest and Frontier warned that delays and flight cancellations were possible at airports near the Gulf Coast because of the storm, and that they may waive fees for itinerary changes.

Despite September being a traditionally busy month in the hurricane season that begins in June and ends November 30, no other tropical cyclones are imminently menacing to the United States. It was downgraded to a tropical depression later in the day.
