Hurricane Harvey, currently with sustained winds of 110 mph will continue to strengthen into a Category 3 (major) hurricane before it makes landfall near Corpus Christi, Texas, overnight. This will be the first major hurricane to strike the U.S. since 2005. Harvey is moving north at 10 mph.
Harvey is expected to produce a combination of widespread serious impacts including storm surge, damaging winds, and extensive flooding.
Due to it’s show movement, once it makes landfall, copious amounts of rain—over 30 inches in spots—will result in widespread inundation, flash and urban flooding, and tributary and mainstem river flooding. The below image shows the potential storm track for Hurricane Harvey. There are more than 1.2 million head of cattle in this area highlighted by the orange shading. (click for larger image)
