BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Marco is now a Tropical Depression making landfall near the mouth of the Mississippi around 6 p.m. Monday. It is now turning sharply west and will continue following the Louisianan coastline into east Texas. Marco will continue to dissipate as is travels west.
Tropical Storm Laura is showing signs of strengthening. Right now, Laura has winds of 65 mph and has moved across Cuba. With the warm, open waters of the Gulf ahead and favorable environment for strengthening, Laura could be a hurricane by Tuesday morning.
Laura will likely strengthen between Tuesday and Wednesday. Some models are bringing this storm up to a category 3 before landfall. Land fall is likely to occur Wednesday with storm surge and hurricane forced winds being the greatest threats.
