Tropical Storm Karen

Tropical Storm Karen
The storm, the first to threaten the U.S. coast during the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season, had top winds of 65 mph and was centered about 485 miles south of the mouth of the Mississippi River.
It was moving north-northwest and was expected to turn north, hitting the U.S. coast near the Mississippi-Alabama border on Saturday.
A hurricane watch was issued for the coast from Grand Isle, Louisiana, eastward to Indian Pass, Florida, alerting residents to expect hurricane conditions within the next 48 hours.
Karen would become a hurricane if its sustained winds reach 74 mph. That was expected to happen late Friday.
“Some weakening is anticipated as Karen approaches the Gulf Coast but the storm could still be near hurricane strength at landfall,” the forecasters said.

A tropical storm watch was in effect in Louisiana from Grand Isle west to Morgan City, and for New Orleans, Lake Maurepas and Lake Pontchartrain. Tropical storms carry winds of 39 mph to 73 mph.
Heavy rains were forecast all along the northern Gulf Coast, and locally heavy rain could also affect parts of Cuba and Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula in the next couple of days, the forecasters said.
