TS Marco in Gulf aiming at Louisiana, TS Laura also on way

  • The Associated Press

(Port-Au-Prine, Haiti)  —  Tropical Storm Marco is swirling over the Gulf of Mexico heading for a possible hit on the Louisiana coast as a hurricane Monday.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Laura has knocked utilities out as it batters Hispaniola, following a track forecast to take it to the same part of the U.S. coast later in the week, also as a hurricane.

It would be the first time two hurricanes appear in the Gulf of Mexico simultaneously, according to records dating to at least 1900.

A hurricane watch has been issued for the New Orleans metro area, which Hurricane Katrina pummeled in August 2005.
