AUSTIN (KXAN) — In the midst of a pandemic, two tropical storms are headed to the Gulf: Tropical Storm Laura and Tropical Storm Marco.
Laura already killed at least eight people in the Dominican Republic. Gov. Greg Abbott is deploying state resources to the Texas coast to brace for Marco and Laura.
In a video lasting less than five minutes, Will DuPree and Amanda Dugan discuss that story as well as these others in the latest KXAN Live News Notes:
- Issues with Zoom affected classes starting in the Austin area.
- Shortages of staffing and resources are plaguing emergency medical services across Central Texas, but a new investment in Austin-Travis County EMS may help the issue.
- Local hospital cases due to the coronavirus keep declining.
- The state is teaming up with the cities of San Marcos and Kyle this week to offer free COVID-19 testing.
