UPDATE: Galveston is under a hurricane watch issued by the National Weather Service due to Tropical Storm Laura. The agency is more confident that the forecast for Tropical Storm Laura appears to be tracking toward the upper Texas Coast and Louisiana. However, it remains possible that the storm could track west and that Galveston will have some of the effects of the storm, including greater wind and rain. Stay connected and pay attention to weather reports.
A hurricane warning is now in effect from Bolivar to Morgan City, LA.
