Tropical Storm Karen is currently churning in the Gulf of Mexico and we are on storm watch until Wednesday, 10/9/13 as is stands now. The current path will certainly affect our area with possible heavy rainfall.
Normally we would tell you to stay up to date with NOAA.gov but that website is currently closed for business due to the current government shutdown. However, you can get information at Weather.gov. I’m not sure of the difference since it is also a NOAA website. A political tactic? Possibly.
Be sure to keep and eye to the sky and the surf!
