Tropical Storm Laura formed in the Atlantic Friday and has Florida’s Panhandle in its path.
According to the National Weather Service’s current track, the storm could strengthen to a Category 1 hurricane and make landfall anywhere from Florida’s northwest corner to eastern Louisiana.
Another storm, currently known as Tropical Depression 14, is also in the Gulf and could also reach hurricane strength. It is forecast to head further west toward Texas, but if it and Laura both become hurricanes, it will mark the first time in recorded history that two hurricanes were present in the Gulf at the same time, according to Colorado State University researcher Phil Klotzbach.
