Might as well beat the Christianists to it, right?
The Weather Channel reports:
Harvey has rapidly intensified into the third hurricane of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season and may become the nation’s first Category 3 landfall in almost 12 years, poised to hammer the Texas Gulf Coast with an extremely dangerous combination of torrential rainfall, storm-surge flooding and destructive winds this weekend, before taking a strange, meandering path next week. The NHC says the center of Harvey is located about 340 miles southeast of Corpus Christi, Texas, and is moving northwest at 10 mph. Maximum sustained winds have now increased to 80 mph.
A hurricane warning has been issued for a portion of the Texas coast, from north of Port Mansfield to Matagorda, including the city of Corpus Christi. A hurricane warning means hurricane conditions are likely within the watch area. They are typically issued within 36 hours of the expected onset of hurricane-force winds. Tropical storm warnings are in effect from north of Matagorda to High Island, Texas, including the cities of Houston and Galveston. This means tropical storm conditions are expected within 36 hours.
