Tropical storm warning for Cameron

The National Weather Service has issued a tropical storm warning for parts of the Texas and Cameron Parish coasts.

A tropical storm warning means tropical storm conditions are expected within the next 24 hours.

What is now being called Tropical Depression 9 formed this morning in the Gulf of Mexico about 85 miles southwest of Galveston. It has maximum sustained winds of 35 mph.

The mass, which is expected to strengthen, is moving toward the north near 6 mph and its center should make landfall along the Texas coast later today within the warning area between Port O’Connor, Texas, and Cameron, the Hurricane Center said.

No evacuations have been called for Cameron Parish.
