July 8, 2010 — The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a tropical system that's headed for the Texas-Mexico border.

A rain-packed tropical depression is currently headed out of the Gulf and is quickly tracking towards the Texas-Mexico border.

Forecasters say the system could be organized enough to become a “storm” as early as this afternoon.

The system could bring heavy amounts of rain to a region already dealing with major floods. The Rio Grande and tributaries overflowed last week when Hurricane Alex washed ashore. Tens of thousands of people have already evacuated their homes in Mexican towns.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says the system could bring up to 200mm of rain to some regions, along with damaging winds.

The system could make landfall sometime today.
