Gordon was located about 26 miles southeast of Jackson, Mississippi, with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph. The next name on the list is Helene, followed by Isaac.

Smith said there's more to it than rain and flooding; it's also the risky rip currents and possible power outages. It's too soon to say other than we're keeping a close eye on the storm. Infrared satellite data from Aqua's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument identified the strongest areas of the storm where cloud-top temperatures were indicative of strong winds and heavy rain, according to a statement from NASA.
