BATON ROUGE - The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is activating its Crisis Action Team Wednesday due to an increasing tropical threat in the western Gulf of Mexico.

The remnants of what was once tropical storm Harvey are expected to pass over the Yucatan Peninsula and then strengthen. National Weather Service forecasters say Harvey could be a tropical depression by Wednesday and a Category 1 hurricane by Friday.

Harvey is expected to make landfall around the central Texas coast. The governor's office says the Crisis Action Team stands ready to answer requests for support from its partners at the local level.
