The slow-moving Hurricane Sally weakened to a Category 1 storm early Tuesday, but is expected to gain strength before making landfall along the Gulf Coast as a "dangerous hurricane," according to the National Hurricane Center.

Gulfport, Mississippi (CNN)The slow-moving Hurricane Sally weakened to a Category 1 storm early Tuesday, but is expected to gain strength before making landfall along the Gulf Coast as a "dangerous hurricane," according to the National Hurricane Center.

The center of the storm is expected to move near the coast of southeastern Louisiana on Tuesday, reaching land Tuesday night or Wednesday morning, the hurricane center said.

As the storm approached Monday, Mississippian Mike Taylor prepared by filling and placing sandbags around his house in Long Beach to keep water out.

Taylor said he isn't nervous about Hurricane Sally because he believes he has already experienced a worse storm.

A lifelong Gulf Coast resident, 35-year-old Robert Higdon also filled sandbags ahead of the storm's arrival.

Mandatory evacuations have been announced along the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama ahead of the storm.
