Gordon's tight core was about 20 miles (32.19 kilometers) northwest of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and it's maximum sustained winds had dropped to 40 mph (64 kph), the service advised.

The latest killings have been found deep into Botswana - close to the protected Okavango Delta wildlife sanctuary, which attracts tourists from around the world.
Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 45 miles. The tropical wave the First Alert Hurricane Tracking Team has been monitoring most of the week is beginning to show better organization on Sunday afternoon. With the 8am Sunday update, the National Hurricane Center gave the system a 80 percent chance of tropical development over the next 5 days and a 50 percent chance over the next 2 days.
A Federal Court of Appeal decision Thursday overturned the approval of construction permits for the Trans Mountain pipeline, from Alberta to the B.C.
