Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey is strengthening and expected to make landfall near Corpus Christi Texas as a major hurricane sometime late Friday evening. The first impact will be a substantial storm surge – that’s when the hurricane pushes a mound of water ashore. This mound is expected to be higher than 10 feet in some areas, which will produce a lot of flooding. The other significant threat from the storm will be flooding from rain as the storm is expected to stall for several days just inland.
