BATON ROUGE, La. (NBC33) — Tropical Storm Dorian formed in the eastern Atlantic Ocean, with winds sustained around 50 mph Wednesday morning.
It is forecast to move west-northwest through the next, several days and slide north of the Caribbean Sea early, next week.
Right now, Dorian is not a threat to Louisiana, but areas in the United States, included the Gulf of Mexico, need to closely monitor the track, as we enter the last week of July.
