Tropical storm in Gulf could bring heavy rain

Tammy Prater with the American Red Cross discusses hurricane readiness.

A tropical storm brewing in the Gulf could bring more severe weather to the East Texas area later this week.

That's why Tammy Prater with American Red Cross says being ready ahead of an emergency is crucial.

"Making a plan, building a kit, knowing what you are going to do in an emergency is important," Prater said.

She says that the American Red Cross does work all year long to make sure they are ready for the unexpected.

"We are recruiting and training volunteers so that if something should happen we can make a response and help take care of people," Prater said.
