Hurricane Watch Just Posted for Part of Coastal Texas

Tropical Depression Harvey is now forecast to strengthen to hurricane strength just before landfall (see the "H" I added to the NHC map). A hurricane watch and a storm surge watch from Port Mansfield to High Island due to a 4-6' surge expected along with sustained winds of around 75 mph.

There is the likelihood of life-threatening flash floods with the storm as it stalls near the Texas coast (see map).

I'll have more late this afternoon or evening, including safety suggestions.
