There are two tropical cyclones brewing in the Gulf of Mexico. Tropical Depression 14 poses the most threat to the Texas Gulf Coast. TD14 is expected to intensify into a hurricane as it passes over the warm Gulf waters, but could reduce back down to a Tropical Storm as it approaches the coast. There is still uncertainty in the models as far as landfall, but we expect rain and wind early next week. Please review your hurricane plan and make sure you have a plan for your family and your pets.
