Tropical Storm Laura and Tropical Storm Marco Update
Status Update from the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management
MONTGOMERY COUNTY – There has been a significant change in the forecast tracks for Tropical Storm Laura and Tropical Storm Marco. Laura and Marco are still forecast to become hurricanes before making landfall. However, both storms are expected to track farther East and make landfall along the Louisiana coastline. It is still important that we monitor both of these systems closely, and continue to prepare if either storm starts to track more to the West. Montgomery County agencies and resources are on alert and ready to activate as needed for our area. Our office will continue to monitor these storms, and send updates as we receive them.
