(Reuters) – Gordon has weakened into a tropical depression over central Mississippi with continued threats of heavy rains and flooding, the U.S. National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said on Wednesday.

The depression is located about 25 miles (40 km) south-southeast of Jackson, Mississippi with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour(55 km/h), it said.

Gordon is expected to weaken as it moves farther inland, the Miami-based weather forecaster added.
