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.
Harvey’s forecast path is slow and meandering, meaning a long duration flood threat with catastrophic results.
