Texas Governor Greg Abbott wants people to be prepared with the potential tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico. Abbott says the storm could evolve into a hurricane, but noted it is impossible to tell where the storm will go or its strength. The National Hurricane Center's latest forecast shows the formation of Hurricane Barry hitting Louisiana and part of Texas on Saturday. There is concern about flooding for the Houston and Beaumont area. The state has activated multiple rescue squads to be prepared if high water hits. The governor is also encouraging people to get flood insurance.
