Harvey Now A Hurricane

Hurricane Harvey is predicted to hit land in Texas as a Category 3 storm late tonight or early Saturday. And this one is serious.

Corpus Christi's Mayor Joe McComb told residents to heed requests and voluntarily evacuate. "We encourage the residents in low-lying areas, as they say, to get out of Dodge," he said.

The storm's surge could be up to 10 feet, with waves as high as 20 feet above that. About 10 to 20 inches of rain is expected, but some areas could see as much as 30 inches. Flash flooding and 115 mph gusts are possible. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott warned residents of "severe flooding" and declared a state of disaster for 30 counties along the coastline.
