Hurricane Harvey Inundates Texas

Hurricane Harvey could devastate parts of Texas — here's what you need to know

Harvey's torrential rains pummelled the south-central US state of Texas after the storm made landfall as a category 4 hurricane late Friday, about 50km north-east of Corpus Christi, the National Hurricane Center said.

According to CNN, more than 250,000 total customers had lost power throughout the Texas coastal region.

To top off all that, the hurricane center forecast over the next five days - and that often gets changed - is for Harvey to hug the coast and stay strong enough to be a tropical storm through Wednesday at least.

State officials said they had no count on how many people actually left their homes.

The number of power outages, meanwhile, kept increasing.

"It's pretty dramatic", Texas Gov. Greg Abbott told reporters Saturday.

Texas and Louisiana declared states of disaster before Harvey hit, authorizing the use of state resources to prepare. It made landfall Friday evening around Rockport, Texas.

A man with local ties had just relocated to Corpus Christi, TX to play hockey when Hurricane Harvey began to take aim at the coast. Look at some of the language from some of the latest National Weather Service bulletins, compared with the weather service's Hurricane Katrina descriptions in 2005.

Firefighters began going house to house in the town on Saturday.

Picking up broken glass on his front yard, he was surrounded by toppled trees that littered his yard. It threatened the Canadian coast near Newfoundland, but its largest point was when it was still over the ocean.

"Sinton community please try to refrain from leaving your house". This is just the 4 category 4 or 5 storm to make landfall in the U.S. since 1970. "We really pray that people are listening to their emergency managers and get out of harm's way". "This is going to be different", Lindner was quoted by Houston Public Media as saying. But Harvey doesn't have to fight those winds. These counties include: Atascosa, Bexar, Brazos, Caldwell, Cameron, Comal, Grimes, Guadalupe, Hardin, Jasper, Kerr, Lee, Leon, Madison, Montgomery, Newton, Tyler, Walker, Washington, and Willacy.

BURNETT: Exactly. A guy who owned a bait shop told me that they got about 6 to 8 feet of storm surge. The many drainage channels known as bayous that carry excess water to the Gulf were rising. It is also important to note that a large storm out in the ocean obviously is likely to produce much less damage than a smaller storm that travels inland. In Bluffton the average is $2.04, in Hardeeville it is $2.07, while in Beaufort it is $2.10.

"It's the key energy hub of the U.S", said Matt Smith, director of commodity research at ClipperData. Between 12 to 14 people were injured in Rockport, a town of about 10,000 where Harvey delivered a direct blow. Severe damage has been reported at Rockport High School and the courthouse. "But the conditions are deteriorating".

President Donald Trump, facing the first big natural disaster of his term, signed a disaster proclamation on Friday. The declaration allows federal funding to help stricken areas. The Hurricane Center has issued a storm surge warning for a more-than-400-mile stretch of coastline from Port Mansfield to High Island. "We are having a rain event".

He also praised Federal Emergency Management Administrator Brock Long for "a great job".

It's the first Category 4 hurricane to hit Texas since Carla in 1961. We do it quickly, we do it effectively, we have an amazing team'. "Never in a million years did I think it'd hit here". They're just beginning to comprehend what has happened to their beautiful little cities.
