Tropical Storm Bret Forms, Not a Threat to Texas

What is the danger?
Tropical Storm Bret has formed off the coast of Venezuela. It is the second named storm of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. Bret will pose no threat to the Texas Gulf Coast and is not the storm currently located in the Gulf of Mexico. That disturbance, if named, will become Tropical Storm Cindy.
