The National Weather Service today issued a hurricane warning for the Texas coast. The center of Hurricane Harvey is southeast of Corpus Christi and is moving northwest with 80-mph winds. It is expected to make landfall between Corpus Christi and Houston.
Harvey is expected to strengthen and is likely to be a Category 3 hurricane by the time it makes landfall Friday night or early Saturday morning. The Texas Department of Public Safety is urging people to prepare for severe weather, strong winds and localized flooding through the weekend.
Bexar County is under a flash flood watch and tropical storm warning. San Antonio could see between 8 to 15 inches of rain and wind gusts up to 60 mph.
