Hurricane Harvey is about to hit Texas -- here are the areas in the storm's path

Hurricane Harvey is expected to hit the coast of Texas by Friday night as a Category 3 storm. 

In addition to winds that have reached 110 miles per hour, Harvey is expected to dump a foot or two of rain on much of Texas, causing “life-threatening and devastating flooding.”

The storm is projected to hit the Texas coast near Corpus Christi, move inland toward Houston and later change course heading toward Houston as a tropical storm.

Here’s what the National Weather Service predicts Harvey’s path will look like. 

 A large part of southeast Texas and most of Louisiana will feel the effects of Harvey as well, and heavy rain is expected especially near the coast.
