NEW ORLEANS, La. (BRPROUD)- The U.S Coast Guard began their preparations ahead of Tropical Storm Marco and Tropical Storm Laura.

The Coast Guard is stationing around the Gulf Coast to urge others to begin safety measures.

“Our ability to conduct rescues can be diminished or non-existent at the height of a storm, but we have our crews staged and ready to respond to emergencies immediately after each storm passes,” Cmdr. Mickey Dougherty said.
