Tropical Storm Laura Sweeps Through Gulf of Mexico
SOUTHEAST UNITED STATES - Active weather is occurring off the Gulf Coast, as many fear back-to-back hurricanes. Although Hurricane Marco was downgraded to a tropical storm late last night, Tropical Storm Laura continues to gain momentum off of the coast of Louisiana. It is expected to strengthen into a hurricane before touching land.
According to CNN Weather, both of these storms were predicted to hit land within 48 hours of each other—a weather event that has not yet been seen in modern meteorological history.
Meteorologists warn that Laura is getting stronger in the warm waters of the Caribbean and may assume full strength by Tuesday. By Wednesday, it could become a Category 2 storm.
Tropical Storm Marco was expected to sweep through Lousiana and into part of Southeast Texas. Tropical Storm Laura is expected to sweep straight through Lousiana.
