"Tropical Storm Nicholas to Bring Heavy Rain to Texas and Louisiana"

"Tropical Storm Nicholas was expected to dump more than a foot of rain on parts of coastal Texas starting Monday, with warnings of a dangerous storm surge extending east to Louisiana, the National Hurricane Center said.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for the coast of Texas, from the mouth of the Rio Grande to High Island, Texas, about 80 miles east of Houston, the center said. Mexico has also issued a tropical storm warning from Barra El Mezquital north to the U.S.-Mexico border.

A hurricane watch is also in effect for the coast of Texas, from Freeport to Port Aransas, just east of Corpus Christi, the center said."
