Hurricane Harvey is expected to hit Texas, and it is likely to bring catastrophic rainfall to the state.
The hurricane will also bring devastating floods to Texas, which has been battered by two previous hurricanes.
“We are currently seeing a significant increase in rainfall that is already hitting Texas and will be intensifying over the next few days,” said Scott MacFarlane, director of the National Weather Service.
He warned that Harvey could cause flooding to the Texas coastline.
“There is some indication that this could be a potential event for flooding as we continue to see more rainfall over the coming days and weeks,” MacFarella said.
Harvey’s winds are expected to be around 60 mph.
“This is the worst storm in the history of Houston, and I don’t think it’s going to end anytime soon,” Macfarlane said.
“What’s really going to determine its trajectory is whether the system will stay on track or not.”
The storm is expected not to make landfall until Monday at 4 p.m.
It is forecast to dump 3 inches of rain in Texas over the course of four hours.
It will be moving toward the Gulf Coast of Texas.
The storm has already dumped more than 4.8 inches of rainfall on parts of the Texas coast.
A storm surge of more than six feet has been recorded in the Houston area.
The Texas Department of Transportation has issued a flood advisory for Houston and portions of the Gulf coast of Texas and is asking people to leave the area.
Texas Gov. “
The state is coordinating the deployment of resources to the area and the response is expected by the end of this week.”
Greg Abbott said in an emergency proclamation that residents should expect “heavy rains and flooding” for the next two to three days and that there is no indication that there will be widespread flooding.
Gregg Abbott declared a state for emergency as of 7 p.mm.
Texans are urged to monitor the Houston Police Department’s website for updates and to call 911 if they experience water damage or flooding. “
I have requested that federal, state and local authorities be on the ground to assist in providing assistance and resources to those impacted by the devastating storms, which have already caused significant damage to the Houston region and the entire Texas Gulf Coast region,” Abbott said.
Texans are urged to monitor the Houston Police Department’s website for updates and to call 911 if they experience water damage or flooding.
The National Weather Center has issued an advisory for the Texas Gulf coast.
“Heavy rains and strong winds are forecast to continue into Tuesday with winds expected to reach 70 mph and heavy rain,” the NWS said.
Hurricane Harvey’s impact in Texas is expected be less severe than that of Irma.
Harvey will not cause major damage to infrastructure or property, but it will make landfall along the coast of southeastern Texas and the Texas Panhandle in the state’s largest metropolitan area.
It is expected that some communities along the Texas Coast will be without power for days.
Harvey is forecast as a category 1 hurricane.
Category 1 hurricanes are expected along the Gulf of Mexico, but there is little data to indicate that Harvey will be a Category 2 hurricane.
The forecast also predicts severe flooding to parts of Texas, particularly the lower Mississippi River Valley, which is home to more than 20 million people.
A National Hurricane Center official said that Harvey’s maximum sustained winds will be between 85 mph and 95 mph (140 and 180 km/h).
The hurricane is forecast by the National Hurricane Centre to reach landfall somewhere between the state of Texas’ Gulf coast and Louisiana, Louisiana’s state capital.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says that it has no immediate plans to rebuild in flood-prone areas.
“While the damage to Texas has been extensive, there is nothing to indicate the impact will be catastrophic,” the Army Corps said in its statement.
The Corps said it was assessing the impact of the storm to determine the most appropriate response to mitigate damage.
The Army Corps was created in 1935 to protect the United States from catastrophic floods.
The agency is the federal government’s official disaster response agency and is responsible for managing flood risks and providing flood insurance.
