Tropical Storm Gordon Heads to Mississippi and Creates High Surf for Gulf Coast


Along the Gulf Coast, we’re watching as Tropical Storm Gordon makes its way through the Gulf of Mexico and is projected to make landfall on Tuesday evening along the coast of Mississippi. The storm will result in rain and high surf for Destin, Florida.  Click here for updates from the National Hurricane Center. 

Therefore, local officials are flying double red flags due to dangerous rip currents and the Gulf is closed for swimming. High rip current risk will remain in effect through Wednesday evening. Safety is our top priority and we encourage all beachgoers to abide by the flag warning system and stay safe. Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the sandbar. Anyone who is caught in a rip current, should yell for help and remain calm.Do not swim into the current. To swim out of a rip current, swim parallel to the shore and back toward the beach when possible after the current disapates.   

We invite visitors to check out our “Things to Do on a Rainy Day in Destin” blog for fun things to do in Destin when it is not so sunny outside.
