Tropical Storm Humberto forms in Gulf of Mexico

September 12, 2007

Tropical Storm Warnings have been issued for parts of the Texas and Louisiana coasts as Tropical Storm Humberto nears.

Rain was already falling along the Gulf Coast at 2 p.m. EDT, with Humberto's center still about 70 miles south-southwest of Galveston, Texas, the National Hurricane Center said.

Humberto had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph and was expected to move ashore later Wednesday. Forecasters warned of storm surge flooding of 2 feet to 3 feet near where the storm's center makes landfall.

Humberto formed from a depression that developed Wednesday
morning.
