Tropical Storm Beta, (the second letter of the Greek alphabet) has formed in the Gulf Of Mexico and according to NOAA will bring more torrential rainfall along the battered Gulf Coast through at least the middle of next week as Beta is forecast to move slowly toward and along or offshore of the coast through that time.
