hurricane Gordon was east of Cape Canaveral, Florida, moving west with 25 kt
winds. Gordon continued west and made landfall in the Cape Canaveral area
early on 21 November. It tuned north overland and dissipated later that same
day over southeast Georgia.

life. There are also no addition reports of damage or casualties. Latest
reports contain conflicting information on the number of deaths in Haiti, with
figures ranging between 800-2000. The exact death toll there may never be
known. So far, damage estimates in the United States range from 150-200 mil-
lion dollars. There are no damage estimates from the other countries Gordon
affected at this time.
