CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System announces plans in advance of Laura’s impact

Published 8:58 pm Monday, August 24, 2020

We continue to closely monitor the progress of Tropical Storms Marco and Laura across the Gulf of Mexico.

As Tropical Storm Marco continues to weaken and becomes less of a threat to Southeast Texas, Tropical Storm Laura is expected to strengthen before making landfall in southeast Texas to south central Louisiana late Wednesday/early Thursday, possibly as a major hurricane.

CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System continues to take all necessary precautions, in advance of the storms, to protect our patients, our Associates and physicians and secure our facilities.
