The Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Danny in the Atlantic as it moves toward the Caribbean. GOHSEP Director Kevin Davis says the storm is expected to reach hurricane strength later this week.  


Davis says it's important for people to take notice now.
 
"Most people are active right now with other activities going on but they still need to sit down and look at a plan, just in case, and make sure you monitor the weather over the next few days."

Davis says on its current track, the storm could possibly enter the Gulf of Mexico.  He says we will know more as the week progresses.  Davis says this would be a good opportunity to make sure you have a plan in place in case a hurricane threatens.

"Now is the time to kind of be planning that move, if you had to go somewhere else, and how you're going to communicate with family members either in the general area or outside of the area."

This hurricane season is forecast to be below average.  Although it's been several years since a major hurricane has impacted Louisiana, Davis says that's no reason to let your guard down.

"It is a low season but it only takes one storm and one can still come into the Gulf so you just need to be aware of that and monitor it."
