We'll have to keep an eye on rain totals because this system will certainly produce heavy rain in parts of in but we should wait another 12-24 hours before we can confidently say just where. After landfall the storm will continue west north-west as it dissipates, but should be bringing more rain and winds into the county later Thursday, although rainfall is expected throughout the week with slow-moving thunderstorms. Meteorologist Jon Carney with the National Weather Service says the remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon will dump three-to-six inches on us, starting after midnight (fri) and continuing in to Saturday. Some Gulf Coast ARES teams activated briefly prior to Gordon's landfall on the Gulf Coast on the evening of September 4 near the Mississippi-Alabama state line. It knocked out power to at least 27,000 utility customers in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. Neighbor Amanda Ray told the Pensacola News Journal she heard a crack and a scream as the limb fell around 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Barradas said he ran back in his home to get a flashlight, but by the time he got to the neighbor's home the baby had stopped crying. The Escambia County Sheriff's office posted on its Facebook page that responding deputies discovered the child had been killed.

The child's age and identity were not released.

EMEPA sent 15 employees to help with outages in the areas of MS hit hardest by the storm.

The central part of the state may receive six or more inches of rain from the former tropical storm, which passed over the Alabama coast and into MS and Arkansas on Wednesday. New Orleans braced for flooding, but in the end got only a glancing blow. And residents along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, which expected a serious hit, were largely spared. In Biloxi, fisherman Ndoc Nguyen was returning with his shrimp boat to the marina. MS shut down a dozen Gulf Coast casinos.

The International Space Station got a good look on the storm as it bore down on the Gulf Coast on Tuesday.

Driftwood and other debris on the causeway made for hazardous driving early Wednesday to Dauphin Island, Alabama, which was partly flooded by seawater overnight, leaving people to drive over sand and around lawn furniture on the main road in the wake of the storm.
