could become a low level hurricane before landfall
Tropical Storm Debby now appears on a path to miss Texas entirely, as the National Hurricane Center has discontinued all watches and warnings for the Louisiana coast, 1200 WOAI news reports.
No computer models in the 8PM reading show Debby coming anywhere near San Antonio, and only one shows the storm hitting Texas at all, the upper Texas coast between Houston and the Sabine River.
That’s because Debby is expected to be bringing more rain than wind, and whoever gets the storm will receive a good soaking, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Debby may become a 'low intensity' hurricane, proabably a Category One, before making landfall, if it stays over the warm waters of the Gulf long enough, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Some Gulf oil rigns have evacuated their employees from platforms as a precaution, and that has the potential of stopping the downward movement of gas prices.
