Tropical Storm Karen forms in Gulf of Mexico

A hurricane watch is in effect for parts of the U.S. Gulf Coast after Tropical Storm Karen formed in the southeastern portion of the Gulf of Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said today.

The hurricane watch covers the area from Grand Isle, La., east to Indian Pass, Fla. A tropical storm watch is in effect from west of Grand Isle to Morgan City, La., an area that includes New Orleans.

Karen formed between Cuba and Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and is producing winds of 60 mph.

The storm is moving north-northwest up the Mexican coast and has a “near 100 percent” chance of becoming a hurricane or cyclone in the next two days, the hurricane center said.

The information that NOAA.gov provides is necessary to protect life and property and the website will be updated and maintained during the federal government shutdown, the hurricane center said.
