HARVEY UPDATE: Slow moving tropical storm could be local flood threat

Hurricane Harvey

Major impacts including life-threatening storm surge and destructive winds will accompany the landfall of this storm initially, followed by life-threatening inland flooding over the weekend in the same area near landfall due to the storm stalling out over south-central Texas through the weekend.

Platforms and rigs are already being shut down in anticipation of the storm, which is currently forecast to be a Category 3 hurricane with 111 mph winds.

Louisiana becomes the second state to declare a state of emergency over the impending storm. Storm surge flooding could reach heights of 6 to 10 feet (1.8 to 3 meter) above ground level at the coast between the north entrance of the Padre Island National Seashore and Sargent.

How bad will it be?

This is looking more and more like a very significant storm for Texas - possibly as powerful as Ike, which hit back in 2008.

The 1 p.m. Thursday forecast track shows Harvey making landfall near Corpus Christi early Saturday morning.

Gov. Greg Abbott announced he was pre-emptively declaring a state of disaster for those counties, a formal declaration that allows Texas to quickly deploy resources for any emergency. "Primarily, the focus is to get good wind measurements during the landfall, but we also can measure temperature, relative humidity and the pressure as the storm is making landfall".

The problem is not so much the wind, although there will be wind damage with 85 mph the current forecast. "The safety of both teams, personnel and fans are of the utmost importance and we expect to make a decision soon that is in the best interest of all involved". Just hours ago it was a tropical storm, and yesterday it was only a tropical depression. Named by Time.com one of the best weather apps for your iPhone.

At midday, it was centered about 340 miles southeast of Corpus Christi, Texas, moving north-northwest at 10 mph.

"People should be prepared to leave their homes if evacuation orders are given", said AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.

"You're seeing prices move up because refiners have to take precautionary measures", Kloza said.
