GULFPORT, Miss.–Anytime there is a tropical system in the Atlantic residents on Mississippi’s Gulf Coast are concerned. Tropical Storm Dorian is now out there, some 3,500 miles from the mainland U.S. and hurricane experts believe it’s too early to tell just where it will end up.
“It’s that time of year when systems coming off the coast of Africa have the potential to develop,” said Dennis Feltgen, spokesperson for the National Hurricane Center.
“Now what impact it has on the Isalnds of the eastern Carribean and beyond that-it’s way too early to tell,” he said.
It’s now moving westward, with winds of more than 50 mph.
News Mississippi will monitor any storm that has the potential to affect the Magnolia State.
