Tropical Storm Gordon made landfall on Tuesday just west of the Alabama-Mississippi border, lashing the U.S. Gulf Coast with high winds and heavy rain, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.Gordon was about 35 miles (55 km) south-southwest of Mobile, Alabama and was packing maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 km/h) after making landfall, the Miami-based weather forecaster said.As of Tuesday night, the storm had not reached 74 mph winds, the minimum to become a hurricane.Tropical-storm force winds were already lashing the Alabama and western Florida panhandle coastlines and some areas still recovering from last year's storms could see 12 inches (30 cm) of rain.Built after Hurricane Katrina, the home is made to withstand a 150 mile-an-hour wind, she said.
