Harvey is a Cat3

Posted by on Aug 25, 2017 in blog, Storm Warnings, storm water | 0 comments

As we watch the storm inch towards the Gulf Coast just east of Corpus Christi this evening, the winds will back down from the 115mph+ (some models even claim up to a 125mph Cat4 by end of the night!) beast he is right now. Rain bands have already been battering the coast from Brownsville to Beaumont. And some of them are already dropping some quantity of rain. While the Houston area won’t experience the high winds, the rain will continue to fall. And fall. And fall. As Harvey stalls out of South Texas and then heads East, whatever that may look like, the Houston area will still be getting rain. So there is definitely going to be wind damage in and around Corpus Christi, and there is going to be flooding from the I35 corridor all the way into Louisiana. Some of it will be extensive and devastating. More updates to come!
