FL TO PASCAGOULA MS FROM 20 TO 60 NM...SOUTH MOBILE BAY AND
MISSISSIPPI SOUND...THROUGH 1100 AM CDT...

AT 959 AM CDT...A LINE OF STRONG THUNDERSTORMS WAS LOCATED ALONG A
LINE EXTENDING FROM 19 MILES SOUTH OF PASCAGOULA TO 25 MILES
SOUTHWEST OF FAREWELL BUOY...AND MOVING EAST AT 5 MPH. OTHER STORMS
ARE DEVELOPING FURTHER EAST AND SOUTHEAST OF THIS BAND.

* LOCATIONS IMPACTED INCLUDE WATERS NEAR...

  MISSISSIPPI SOUND EAST OF PASCAGOULA...     HERON BAY...
  FORT MORGAN...        FORT GAINES...        FAREWELL BUOY...

THE PRIMARY THREATS FROM THESE STORMS ARE WIND GUSTS UP TO 30
KNOTS...LOCALLY HIGHER WAVES...AND HEAVY DOWNPOURS. BOATERS SHOULD
CONSIDER SEEKING SAFE HARBOR UNTIL THESE STORMS HAVE PASSED.

FREQUENT LIGHTNING IS EXPECTED AS THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOP FURTHER. IF
CAUGHT ON THE OPEN WATER STAY BELOW IF POSSIBLE AND KEEP AWAY FROM
METAL OBJECTS.

CONDITIONS SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF WATERSPOUTS. WATERSPOUTS CAN
EASILY OVERTURN BOATS AND CREATE LOCALLY HAZARDOUS WAVES AND SEAS.
IF A WATERSPOUT IS SIGHTED...SEEK SAFE HARBOR IMMEDIATELY.
