Hurricane Harvey Roars Into Texas

Crossing fingers for our friends in Texas.

Hurricane Harvey is “dangerously approaching the Texas Coast” Friday and is expected to bring as many as 35 inches of rainfall, destructive waves and flood waters that could reach heights of 6-12 feet above ground level along the state’s coast, the National Hurricane Center said.
Forecasters say Harvey is on track to become a Category 3 hurricane with winds of at least 111 mph by the time it hits the middle Texas coast later Friday or early Saturday.
After hitting Corpus Christi, the storm is expected to stall over the state, forecasters say.
It’s been a while, so hopefully people are taking it seriously.
It’s been more than a decade since a major hurricane made landfall in the United States. We are in the longest stretch in history without a Category 3 or greater striking the country since record-keeping began.
