The National Hurricane Center is tracking two tropical depressions in what is already an “extremely active” hurricane season. Tropical Depressions 13 and 14 formed Thursday. 

Tropical Depression 14 formed Thursday over the west-central Caribbean. On Friday, the storm was upgraded to Tropical Storm Marco. This storm will most likely impact the Gulf of Mexico early next week, including the coasts of Texas and Louisiana, according to the NHC’s forecast.  

Tropical Depression 13 also formed Thursday and was upgraded to Laura on Friday. The forecast shows parts of Florida inside the cone, feeling impacts early next week.
