Tropical Storm Gordon spun up early Labor Day just south of Florida, the National Hurricane Center said, and is forecast to move toward the Louisiana Gulf Coast over the next two days.
Tropical storm warnings have been posted for portions of South Florida and the Florida Keys, as well as portions of the northern Gulf Coast.
A hurricane watch has also been posted for coastal areas of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, meaning that hurricane conditions are possible there within the next 48 hours.
Strong wind gusts, battering waves, above-normal tides, minor coastal flooding, flash flooding and a couple of isolated tornadoes and waterspouts will be the main threats from the storm, AccuWeather said.

The red tide also poses a health risk to people. The microorganisms emit brevetoxins, which can get blown into the air. When the toxins are breathed in, they constrict passages in the lungs, causing people to cough and have difficulty breathing.
