Gulf storms: The latest on Marco and Laura’s impact on Houston

Good morning, Houston. Here’s the latest on Marco and Laura: 

The forecast for tropical storms Marco and Laura – the two systems spinning in the Gulf of Mexico – changed dramatically since Friday. Tropical Storm Laura is now expected to be the main threat to Houston, whereas Tropical Storm Marco should be a downgraded depression by the time it reaches the city.

Marco’s storm center is expected to move west along the Gulf Coast after making landfall in southeast Louisiana and could be downgraded to a tropical depression by the time it reaches Houston early Wednesday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

While Marco as a single storm might not pose a threat to Houston, how it interacts with Laura is yet to be seen.

Tropical Storm Laura is currently near central Cuba and is expected to become a hurricane before it makes landfall somewhere between Galveston and central Louisiana. The latest projections from the NHC place Laura’s landfall on the Gulf Coast late Wednesday, just as Marco’s remnants are scattered over Houston.

Forecast tracks are bound to change as meteorologists scrape data on the two storms, but Houstonians should prepare storm kits now.

Make sure to have:

  • Water
  • Cash
  • Batteries 
  • A weather radio 
  • Medicine
  • A gassed-up car 

The NHC has not issued any coastal watches or warnings ahead of the storms, likely because of their uncertain tracks.
