11:00pm Gordon Advisory – Fast Moving Storm Expected To Reach Hurricane Strength…

Louisiana Governor declares state of emergency. Coastal Mississippi and Alabama should be on alert and prepared to finalize storm preparations by noon Tuesday.

[National Hurricane Center] At 1100 PM EDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Gordon was located near latitude 26.9 North, longitude 84.3 West. Gordon is moving toward the west-northwest near 17 mph (28 km/h). A west-northwestward to northwestward motion with some decrease in forward speed is expected over the next few days.

On the forecast track, the center of Gordon will move across the eastern Gulf of Mexico tonight and Tuesday, and will approach the north-central Gulf Coast within the warning area late Tuesday afternoon or evening, and move inland over the lower Mississippi Valley on Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Gradual strengthening is expected during the next 24 hours, and Gordon is forecast to be a hurricane when it makes landfall along the north-central Gulf Coast. Rapid weakening is expected after Gordon moves inland.  [more from Hurricane Center]

          I’m on the north shore of Bay Saint Louis (the body of water, not the town…. the town is southwest of the bay).
          It’s headed directly toward me….. but we should be OK if it does not reach a Cat 3.

              10:00 PM update…… the storm center is roughly on the shoreline at the MS-AL line….just east of Mobile, AL. Around Pascagoula, MS there is a lot of rain….Here in Hancock county MS, and Bay St. Louis & Pass Christian MS it is a beautiful, balmy, breezy evening…….for now(!)
              Hope for the Best and Prepare for the Worst!

        Sometimes they do when they travel over the Floridian Trench. Churns up cold water that can suck some of the life out of the storm. Hopefully Gordon is traveling slowly enough for this to actually have an affect.

      Prayers up for you and all of us survivors. Katrina cast a tough row to hoe. I remember being surprised some of my older neighbors didn’t come back, but after a year of fighting to rebuild, I understood. I don’t think I could do it at that level again. My bank account doesn’t think so either. So, Lord, I don’t want this storm to go anywhere else or hit anyone else, so please, Lord, if it’s gonna hit by me or anyone else, let it be moderate and manageable, that we may sing your praises all the more when the storm is over! In Jesus’ name, AMEN!

      I think you’ll all be ok. This will barely make a category 1 hurricane. Everything is working in our favor. Sea temperatures are still fairly low so it can not develop into anything more than a cat 1. It’s moving fast which will limit it’s development and storm surge. And air pressure is still not low enough to form a stable eye. Worst case will be a mid-level cat 1. If you’re going to get hit by a hurricane, then this is exactly what you want (not that you ever want that, but if it’s going to happen, then this is a “best-case scenario” hurricane)

        May it be God’s will! Thanks for the reassurance. I know these things, but when you live in an awesome but horribly dysfunctional place, like NOLA (freedom that borders on anarchy really isn’t free, but it can be a whole lot of fun–most of the time), even the chance of flooding sorta gets one’s hairs standing on end. But in all things, I’ll trust in the Lord and pray that we are all guarded and guided through it under his mighty wings of mercy.

        BTW, special prayers and prayer requests for the elderly and poor in the Florida Parishes (N/NE of Lake Pontchartrain). Someone very dear to me, who lived near Hammond and was care-giver for her 80+ mom, passed away suddenly last month, so her mom and those similarly situated are sitting in little old country frame houses, right in the storm’s path. I can’t be there, but Jesus can!

    Well, it has bern raining here in not so sunny eastern Nebraska for something like three days now, with occasional pauses to remind us that the sun still exists. Looks like this will continue all week, let up on Friday, return on Saturday (can’t remember whether Nebraska plays at home), clear on Sunday. Flash flooding but so far, though, no animals walking two by two looking for an ark.

The rain rolls right up to our county line and then just peters out. We can’t beg, borrow, steal, buy, rent, lease, or hijack rain in this county!

    This works – it worked for me last year after Irma.

    Buy a pack of gallon size zip-locks. Fill bags with with water and put as many as you can in the freezer(s). I put six in each freezer before I fled from Irma. This kept my freezers frozen for the 3 1/2 days that our power was out. Didn’t have to throw out anything.

    Before electricity people used blocks of ice for their refrigerators. It works. And a lot better than ice cubes. The larger the block of ice the better.

    Something I found out by accident during the hurricaine last year, was that one of those large glowsticks light up an entire room and the brightness lasts for about 6-8 hours. If you have a Party City near by, they sell the large sticks and many other sizes. The large ones are about a foot, maybe a foot and a half long, they cost about $2.99 each, the smaller ones that can hang are $9.99 for 25 of them. Target has different sizes also, some in the party section and others back in the toy section(usually along the wall). Saves on batteries, none needed for these.

      Another option might be to bring in any of those temporary solar lights (the kind you stick in the ground) and use them till they go out!!

      And one more thing: If you have time to plan for a catastrophe, such as a hurricane, try making your own granola bars. There are TONS of recipes online, and many of them are very healthy and high in protein. While you probably wouldn’t want to eat homemade granola bars every day for every meal, they can certainly be used as an energy booster, as well as filling in the cracks between meals. And they also make a great breakfast!!!

    Its the end of the world as we know it.

    Hurricane Irma last year was the first hurricane to make landfall since 2005. It was supposedly the largest. It was labelled a Cat 5. But the sustained wind speeds that define the category are supposed to be measured at 10 meters. Irma’s wind speeds were nowhere near Cat 5 at 10 meters. It was actually a Cat 2/3. The hype for hurricane Irma was unprecedented. My sister lives in Bradenton, Florida, on the west coast side very near where it made landfall. They upended their lives and evacuated north, only to end up in a worse situation with the storm surge.

    When they returned home, she said there were some palm branches on the ground and it looked like there was a thunderstorm. NO damage whatsoever. It passed within 20 miles of their house. This is less than 50 miles from where Hurricane Irma, supposedly the largest storm in history, made landfall.

    So the Weather Channel, et al, are all in on the fake news game too, just trying to make $$$ off ratings. Blowing up every storm as the storm of the century, naming winter storms now, and causing panic.

    The weather news industry is just as fake as the rest of them, and they are going to end up desensitizing people to storms that are really dangerous because they cried “Wolf!”

    Im not saying these storms dont ever cause damage, or people lose lives and property and that is tragic. But I am saying the fake news exploits every single one of them for ratings and Im of the opinion that NOAA and the other agencies are involved in skewing the data on them just to promote the manmade global warming agenda.

      Yeah, this is true. When I mentioned wunderground.com, above, I meant to also add the disclaimer to use their objective weather monitoring and forecasting tools, but avoid their hysterical glowbull wormening BS, which is completely absurd. If people had an attention span of more than 20 minutes, they’d be excoriated by everyone noticing their prophesies of doom never come true and are clearly designed to gin up manipulative hysteria. I’m pretty sure even the GFS hurricane tracking model is “tweaked” making sure the path is weighted to show storms going toward or very close to major metropolitan areas. Whether it’s CYA, in case the storm does go, e.g., to NOLA or crowd manipulation, it’s still false and leads to “cry wolf” syndrome. Also, anyone in the NOLA area or tuning into telecasts from here, only watch weather witch Margaret Orr on WDSU for entertainment–she is consistently so far off the charts hysterical that it’s–well–hysterical.

    O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children. The Sea of Galilee obeyed your order and returned to its former quietude; you are still the Master of land and sea.

The Gulf, like a provoked and angry giant, can awake from its seeming lethargy, overstep its conventional boundaries, invade our land and spread chaos and disaster. During this hurricane season, we turn to You, O loving Father. Spare us from past tragedies whose memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with the passing of time. O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our Beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son in our behalf, so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach the heavenly Jerusalem where a storm-less eternity awaits us.

    So…a minimal CAT 1…. or, so….
    Don’t wish this on anyone, but at least it’s going to be manageable.

    For understandable and simple language reports, try: TropicalTidbits.com much better than Weather channel et al. Ratings are their god (small g)…

    With such “whipping” of the masses, by these TV talking heads – for a CAT 1 or 2 … What will they do for a truly big storm, which is sure to come…? The pro’s and con’s of trying to flee are never talked up…..just glossed over – until you are stuck on some cement riverbed without food/water and/or gas!!… Some of us looked at a method for evac to allow the “kids” to send in a plane for “Mom and Dad” by arrangement – no need to get stuck…. Kind of like a club “share” … Each “route” would be unique – but, designed for safety…farther to the west for some, farther to the Northeast for others – or, even “way far away” mini-vacation. The plan allowed for 15-30 early departures (3+ days out), 15 mid-range ones (2 days) and 15-30 late departures according to position vs the storm track and with distance restrictions of +/-1000 mi. … Once membership was open for say 6 mo, we had ideas of possible shared flight routes to minimize expense for all, and to serve additional members during mid-late day departures. (We originally thought of this for the Florida Keys folks – since their route choice is so fubar….one road, period!…)

    Don’t worry, if NOAA can fiddle the numbers enough to make Gordon into a hurricane, they will. Just look what they do to the temperature record.

    Yes, Gordon is dangerous. But if the warmist activists at NOAA can make it appear more so, and create enough of an appearance that it was, they’ll have succeeded in the propaganda aspect of their mission.

    It’s made landfall, and it doesn’t appear that it ever reached hurricane strength.
    https://www.wunderground.com/hurricane/atlantic/2018/tropical-storm-gordon?map=forecast
    But people will remember it as a hurricane, because of the category 5 spin NOAA puts on all their tropical storm/hurricane news.
