Watch live: Texas governor Greg Abbott speaks ahead of dual storm threat

Texas Governor Greg Abbott is holding a press conference as two storms approach the Gulf Coast, both expected to impact his state. Texas Division Of Emergency Management chief Nim Kidd will join him. 

The National Hurricane Center upgraded Marco to a hurricane Sunday afternoon, with maximum winds of 75 miles per hour, and the agency warned it could bring “life-threatening” storm surge. 

Marco is expected to make a direct hit on Louisiana on Monday, hitting New Orleans with hurricane-force winds and dumping several inches of rain throughout the area and into North Texas.
