Tropical Storm Hanna strengthened slightly Friday as it moves toward the Texas coastline, threatening to bring heavy rain, rough waters and strong winds, all while another tropical storm continued to approach the Caribbean.

Hanna was centered about 260 miles (420 kilometers) east of Corpus Christi, Texas, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said in its 10 a.m. CDT advisory.

The storm had maximum sustained winds around 45 mph (75 kph) and was moving west-northwest at 9 mph (15 kph).

Hanna was forecast to make landfall Saturday.

A tropical storm warning was in effect from the mouth of the Rio Grande to San Luis Pass, Texas.

A tropical storm watch that had been in effect from San Luis Pass to High Island, Texas, was discontinued.

Forecasters increased the expected rainfall totals, stating that Hanna could bring 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 centimeters) of rain and coastal swells that could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
