Hurricane Laura 

Hurricane Laura Update: Storm Track as it is now a Hurricane Laura Category 2 Storm is expecting to make landfall while causing extensive damage to Louisiana and Texas.

The National Hurricane Centre in Miami, Florida has issued a Tropical Weather Outlook today due to the presence of a tropical wave over the eastern Caribbean Sea. This wave is currently called Invest 97L, and it is being observed to forecast whether it might develop into a tropical cyclone. There is also a possibility that it may be the next named hurricane, in which case it would be Hurricane Laura. 

Update: It is now Tropical Storm Laura and will most likely become Hurricane Laura!

Invest 97L is north of Venezuela, south of Puerto Rico, and is currently moving to the west through the Caribbean. As of now, the outlook is that Invest 97L has an 80% chance of forming into a tropical cyclone.

Invest 97L Is likely to move across the Caribbean Sea, but it is not known whether it will head to the north or south, so landfall could be between Honduras and the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula.

While it is rather early to predict whether any parts of the United States would be affected by this tropical storm, homeowners in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas should track its progress and take the necessary precautions. If you reside in a state that is prone to hurricanes, you should check your homeowner’s insurance policy, specifically to see what are the covered perils. If your home is damaged by a hurricane, there may be a variety of perils that cause damage, such as wind, hail, or flooding. As flood insurance is not a part of your standard home insurance, you need to have a separate policy for that.
