Hurricane Marco is tracking toward Southeast Louisana and will likely weaken as it approaches the coast, but tropical storm force winds are possible in our area, along with rain on Tuesday. 

Laura is expected to be more of a threat. Laura is forecast to become a Category 2 hurricane and make landfall somewhere between the Upper Texas coast and Southwest Louisana. Landfall in our area is possible, which would bring significant wind, storm surge and 5 to 10 inches of rain.

Please monitor the weather, especially over the next 72 hours—Laura’s landfall is likely Wednesday afternoon or evening. Make sure you and your family are prepared.

La Marque Emergency Management is monitoring the storm, along with storm surge and rainfall projections. Register for weather alerts and community newsflash e-notifications at connect.cityoflamarque.org.

ORIGINAL POST 

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.
