The massive tropical storm is stretching from the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, across the Gulf of Mexico, and beyond Florida's peninsula into the Atlantic Ocean, bringing with it 15-20 mile-per-hour winds and gusts up to 30 miles per hour during storms.

The threat of greatest impact from Tropical storm Cristobal has moved slightly eastward from Bossier Parish, according to the latest forecasts from the National Hurricane Center.

Strong winds are expected to arrive "well in advance of and extend well east of Cristobal's center", the National Hurricane Center said.
