Hurricane Harvey is projected to make landfall on Friday, Aug. 25, as a Category 2 or 3 hurricane somewhere near Corpus Christi, with the added threat of extreme flooding inland as the storm stalls. This is a serious situation that could last well into next week, with a possible storm surge of 10 feet on the coast and rain far inland forecasted to be measured in feet.
Anyone with operations along rivers in low-lying areas even as far north as San Antonio and Austin are encouraged to move livestock and rolling stock such as tractors and other heavy machinery to higher ground now. If relocation is not possible, take pictures of tractors, machinery or other infrastructure. Document animal losses with pictures.
Lost and found livestock can be reported to TSCRA using this online form or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
