Tropical Storm Laura’s forecast has it at hurricane strength on Tuesday and Wednesday. Laura’s predicted path as of 5 a.m. Monday had it making landfall near the Louisiana-Texas border late Wednesday or early Thursday.
But by Friday, Laura was “expected to produce rainfall of 5 to 10 inches, with isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches across portions of the west-central U.S. Gulf Coast near the Texas and Louisiana border north into portions of the lower Mississippi Valley,” the National Hurricane Center said.
Both storm tracks are unusually close to each other. If and how the two storms will interact with each other are highly uncertain, forecasters said.
This year has set records for named storms and there is still a couple of months left in the hurricane season.Click HERE to subscribe to Fuller Treacy Money Back to top
