TROPICS: Hurricane Warning Issued for Texas

The National Hurricane Center has issued a hurricane warning for the Texas coast.

Harvey is currently located about 370 miles off the Gulf coast and has been upgraded to a tropical storm. It is expected to strengthen into a category-one hurricane tomorrow just before making landfall around Corpus Christi. The warning covers the entire Gulf coast of Texas as Harvey is expected to bring a large storm surge. Forecasters expect the storm to stall once it moves into Texas, which would bring a lot of raining and a high risk of flooding. 

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared a state of disaster for 30 counties, authorizing the use of state resources to prepare for the storm.
