Gulf Coast Braces for Tropical Storm

A potential tropical cyclone has been forming in the Gulf of Mexico over the past few days and it’s anticipated to make landfall Friday night and into the weekend.  The potential tropical cyclone is  located about 255 miles south of Morgan City Louisiana as of 7:00 a.m. Friday morning.  The storms winds were recorded at 35mph Friday morning and according to, “A storm needs a defined center of circulation and winds of at least 39mph to be considered a tropical storm and get a name, which will be Claudette.”

Most of the rain and wind is forecasted to fall east of where the center of the storm lands.  This puts a tropical storm warning in areas from Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle, affecting cities such as New Orleans and Gulfport, Louisiana, Biloxi Mississippi, Mobile, Alabama and Pensacola, Florida.  If the storms projections are true, parts of Alabama could expect to see heavy rainfall throughout the weekend in excess of 4-6 inches.
