Gov. Greg Abbott holds briefing on hurricane preparedness

As ABC13's meteorologists continue to keep an eye on Tropical Depression Cristobal, Gov. Greg Abbott will likely call on Texans to make sure they're prepared for hurricane season, regardless of what happens with this storm.

The governor spoke on hurricane preparedness and Cristobal Friday afternoon.

As of 10 a.m., the National Hurricane Center said Cristobal was still centered over Mexico, but has turned to the north and is headed towards the Gulf of Mexico. It is expected to regain its strength once it goes back into the Gulf this weekend.
