(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s <RDSa.L> oil refineries in Convent, Geismar and Norco, Louisiana, are monitoring and preparing responses to the threat from Hurricane Delta, the company said on Wednesday.

Delta struck the Yucatan peninsula as a Category 2 hurricane earlier Wednesday and is expected to enter the Gulf of Mexico and strengthen. It will approach the U.S. Gulf Coast on the weekend as a Category 3 story with winds of up to 130 miles per hour (209 kmh), the National Hurricane Center said.
