Harvey Now a Major Hurricane, Texans Hunker Down
The first major hurricane to hit the U.S. in over a decade seems to be imminent. As of 1 p.m., Hurricane Harvey's maximum sustained winds are now at 120 mph. The storm continues to move towards the Coastal Bend with the area around Rockport as a possible ground zero late Friday night.
A storm surge of up to 12 feet is possible, devastating winds will occur, and downpours will occur, however, the track of the storm 24-48 hours after landfall continues to be an ever-changing scenario. The storm could loop back to the Gulf of Mexico before a 2nd Texas landfall. That landfall could be near Houston or back to the original 1st landfall location.
Harvey and its future remnants will be a concern for the Lone Star State through late next week. That's why anywhere from a few inches of rain up to 40 inches of rain could fall in some areas.
