We continue to see a significant eastward shift in the track with #Marco as it nears hurricane strength (Stronger system would likely be drawn farther north and east as illustrated by the NHC track). Not much change in the thinking with #Laura as it battles land interaction with the Caribbean Islands this afternoon. It is now becoming increasingly likely that we will see two landfalling storms along the northern Gulf Coast through the course of next week. Now is the time to be prepared for that outcome.

KATC's Bradley Benoit will have the latest tonight at 6 p.m.
