BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)- As Tropical Storm Zeta makes it’s way to the Gulf of Mexico, Governor John Bel Edwards is asking the people of Louisiana to be on the look out.

In a press release, Edwards stated though it is too early to predict the storms impact in the state, the current tracking cone includes Southeast Louisiana and the forecast shows the storm to become a hurricane before landfall.

“It is unfortunate we face another tropical threat this late in a very active season,” Edwards said. “We must roll up our sleeves, like we always do, and prepare for a potential impact in Louisiana.”
