CRGC is sending our well wishes and support to our friends, colleagues, and all who are bracing for Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana. ... See MoreSee Less

Hurricane Harvey is dangerously approaching the Texas coast, centered as of 5 a.m. CDT about 165 miles (265 km) southeast of Corpus Christi. On the forecast track, Harvey will make landfall on the middle Texas coast tonight or early Saturday. Harvey is then likely to meander near or just inland of the middle Texas coast through the weekend. Maximum sustained winds are near 105 mph (165 km/h) with higher gusts - a strong Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some additional strengthening is possible, and Harvey is expected to become a major hurricane with sustained winds up to 120 mph before it reaches the middle Texas coast. A Storm Surge Warning continues from Port Mansfield to High Island Texas and a Storm Surge Watch from south of Port Mansfield Texas to the Mouth of the Rio Grande. A Hurricane Warning continues from Port Mansfield to Sargent and a Tropical Storm Warning from north of Sargent to High Island and from south of Port Mansfield Texas to the Mouth of the Rio Grande. A Hurricane Watch continues from south of Port Mansfield Texas to the Mouth of the Rio Grande and a Tropical Storm Watch continues from south of the Mouth of the Rio Grande to Boca de Catan, Mexico. Harvey is expected to be a major hurricane at landfall, bringing life-threatening storm surge, rainfall, and wind hazards to portions of the Texas coast. Preparations to protect life and property should be completed this morning, as tropical-storm-force winds will first arrive in the hurricane and storm surge warning areas later today.
