FROM BILOXI: WJTV's Brad Maushart Reports on Tropical Depression Karen

Posted: Updated:
Biloxi - Forecasters have discontinued tropical storm watches across the Gulf Coast as Tropical Storm Karen slowly approaches.
 
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said that it had discontinued the watches Saturday afternoon, leaving only part of the Louisiana coastline under a tropical storm warning. That area extended from Grand Isle to the state line with Mississippi.
 
Karen had also begun moving slowly again after being stalled off the coast earlier in the day. Forecasters said it was moving north at about 2 mph. The center of the storm was located about 115 miles southwest of Morgan City, La.
 
Its maximum sustained winds remained at 40 mph.
 
Karen's center was expected to come ashore either Saturday night or Sunday morning. It was expected to weaken and lose tropical-storm status on Sunday.
