Tropical Storm Gordon

Update (9-23-06): From a friend in England: We did have some pretty serious rain this last week thanks to Gordon.  Local flooding that lasted a day or so was as bad as it got.

Update (9-22-06): Gordon reached Europe.  I believe that doesn't happen very often.

Update (9-13-06): Gordon is now a hurricane; and Florence is pretty much out of the picture.  Both Gordon and Helene will probably only become category 2s.

Update (9-12-06): TD7 is now TS Gordon, and Helene may be upcoming; it's predicted to follow Florence and Gordon's paths.

Update: Well, TD7 isn't a tropical storm yet, but Florence is a hurricane.

Tropical Depression #7 should become Tropical Storm Gordon this morning.  It's expected to follow Florence's path.  Here's an earlier report:

A SMALL AREA OF LOW PRESSURE LOCATED ABOUT 550 MILES EAST-NORTHEAST OF THE LEEWARD ISLANDS IS MOVING WESTWARD AT ABOUT 10 MPH. SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY HAS BECOME MORE CONCENTRATED NEAR THE CIRCULATION CENTER AND A TROPICAL DEPRESSION COULD FORM TONIGHT OR TOMORROW. ELSEWHERE...

(Thanks, Lloyd!)
