Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

HURRICANE HARVEY: Catastrophic Winds, Floods Forecast for Texas

Posted by feww on August 25, 2017

Hurricane HARVEY Status Fri Aug 25 [NHC]

Summary of Information at 6:00 AM CDT (11:00 UTC) –  [NHC/NOAA]

Max Sustained Winds: 110 mph [177km/hr; currently a Category 2B Hurricane on FEWW Hurricane Scale] and Strengthening

  • Location: 26.3°N, 95.7°W 
    About 145 mi (235km) SE OF CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS
    About 150 mi (245) SSE OF PORT O’CONNOR, TEXAS
  • Movement: NW (315 degrees) at 10 MPH (17 km/h)
  • MCP: 952 MB  (28.11 inches)

Authorities have warned residents in coastal areas and beyond to evacuate their homes amid potentially “life-threatening winds and floods.”

The strengthening hurricane, forecast to become a Cat 4 hurricane with winds of up to 125 mph (200 km/h), could dump as much as 36 inches (100 cm) of rain on parts of Texas, and cause storm surge as high as 12 feet (3.65 meters).

“Life-threatening and devastating flooding expected near the coast due to heavy rainfall and storm surge,” the NHC said.

State of Disaster
Texas governor has declared a state of disaster for 30 counties and has ordered the Texas Department of Public Safety’s State Operations Center to upgrade its readiness status before HARVEY hits.

Mass Evacuations
Multiple mandatory and voluntary evacuations are currently in effect.

Potential for Disaster
“If a hurricane hits the thousands of storage tanks — ones that hold the world’s largest concentrations of oil, gases and chemicals — that line the Houston Ship Channel just right, more than 25 feet of water could shoot up the channel. And if even one tank ruptured because of it, hundreds of thousands of people could be impacted,” said a report.
