HOUSTON — The KHOU 11 weather team and National Hurricane Center are keeping a close eye on Hurricane Laura, which became a Category 4 storm on Wednesday afternoon.
The hurricane could keep its Category 4 status at the time of landfall, which is expected late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning near the Texas-Louisiana border. There is a chance the hurricane could drop back to a Category 3 just before landfall, but either way this will be an "extremely dangerous" hurricane, warns the National Hurricane Center.
