According to the National Hurricane Center’s latest advisory on Monday, Tropical Storm Laura was projected to be upgraded into a hurricane as it approached the Gulf Coast.

Tropical Storm Laura was named alongside Tropical Storm Marco, which began to fall apart Monday. The storm’s presence set the stage for Laura’s in Louisiana. Forecasters said Laura could make landfall as a supercharged Category 3 hurricane with winds topping 110 mph, thanks to the remnants of Marco.
