As of Monday, Aug. 24, we continue to watch two active tropical storms in the Gulf:
Tropical Storm Marco is weakening as it approaches Louisiana. Forecasts call for the storm to move west along the Louisiana and Texas coast by Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.
Tropical Storm Laura is picking up strength and is predicted to make landfall in the same region as a hurricane late Wednesday or early Thursday.
ARI will continue to monitor these severe weather events throughout the week. Your teams located in these pending paths should prepare for tropical storm and possibly hurricane conditions, including high winds, flooding, and heavy rain.
The safety of your drivers remains our top priority, and protecting your vehicles is the best way to keep your team out of harm’s way. We urge everyone to pay close attention to local forecasts, monitoring the safety of your region and heeding evacuation instructions issued by your local ordinances.
