As if we haven't had enough remarkable moments in 2020, here's another one for you.
The National Weather Service's National Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on two tropical systems currently gathering strength, one currently at the time of this writing in the Atlantic Ocean and the other in the Caribbean.
Both systems are forecasted to enter the Gulf of Mexico early next week. Tropical Storm Laura is forecasted to become a hurricane in the Gulf on Tuesday while Tropical Depression Fourteen, which would be named Marco, could become a hurricane in the Gulf on Tuesday.
Laura is forecasted to make landfall in the Louisiana/Arkansas/Alabama/Florida panhandle region as a hurricane on Wednesday morning. TD Fourteen is forecasted to make landfall in the Texas/Louisiana region as a tropical storm on Tuesday morning.
According to an article on CNN.com, the last time two tropical storm strength systems were in the Gulf of Mexico simultaneously was on June 18, 1959. There is no record of there ever having been two hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico simultaneously.
