MIAMI (AP) – Tropical storm Laura formed in the eastern Caribbean and forecasters say it could pose a hurricane threat to the US eastern Gulf Coast.
And if that’s not enough, a second system could hit the US western Gulf Coast as well after crossing Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
PURSUIT OF THE TROPICALS
The National Hurricane Center on Friday predicted that both will hit the Gulf of Mexico next week, which would pose a simultaneous threat to the entire region.
But there is a lot of uncertainty. First, Laura must survive encounters with Puerto Rico, Hispanola, and Cuba.
