When the next hurricane hits: ‘I have a feeling’ hurricane season will begin in October
Hurricane season is only six months away, but it’s already shaping up to be a long and intense one.
Here’s what you need to know about the first months of the season.
The storm surge warning issued in Houston on Thursday was issued because the storm surge on the Gulf Coast has exceeded 20 feet.
The storm is expected to surge into the upper 20s to upper 30s.
But in the coming days, the threat could grow, and it could flood more homes and kill more people, according to the National Weather Service.
In the Texas Panhandle, more than 1,200 homes were destroyed in the first three days of the hurricane season, according the Texas Flood Control Agency.
“I have an idea that the first wave of the storm is coming out of the Bayou City,” said James McElroy, an engineer with the agency.
“The second wave will be coming out from the Gulf.
And then, it will go over Houston and it will flood all the way to Corpus Christi.”
The first wave is expected Wednesday.
McElrysays he believes there will be some very strong winds.
“If you’re watching in the bayou, you’ll be able to see a lot of the first wind on the east side of Houston coming out into the bay,” McElry said.
And then there are the big storm surges, which will be a real challenge for Houston, according Kevin Sabet, a meteorologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
A high water mark in the city of 5 million could be possible as early as Tuesday, he said.
A surge of 5 to 10 feet could occur, and then it will be too late to get back to your house.
For now, the storm will be mild, but the winds will be powerful.
Here’s what we know about Hurricane Harvey so far:1.
How big is Harvey?
Harvey is about 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) long.
The center of the ocean is at 5.2 miles (8 kilometers).2.
How much rainfall is expected?
Harvey has already produced more than 40 inches of rain.
The storm’s center is expected for a total of 70 inches of rainfall by Thursday morning.3.
How quickly will Harvey’s center be expected to move?
The center is forecast to be moving at about 20 miles per hour (32 kilometers per hour).4.
Will the center of Harvey move much closer to the coast?
The storm center will move about 60 miles (96 kilometers) to the northeast of the center, according The Weather Channel.
That’s just under half a mile (1.6 kilometers) away from the Texas coastline.5.
Will there be widespread flooding?
Most likely, but experts say that could be an underestimate.
There’s been some rain in some areas, but not in large amounts, and even if there were, that could only be due to the heavy rainfall that Houston received in the last few days.
In the past, Harvey has produced rain on the scale of one inch (2.8 centimeters) or more.
How is Harvey affecting the Gulf of Mexico?
Hurricane Harvey has been moving along the Gulf coast for several days now, so the center is moving faster than expected.
Harvey’s track is getting further west and is expected soon to cross the coast.
It’s possible that the center could reach the Texas coast at about 8:30 p.m.
Hurricane Harvey has brought winds of 130 mph (200 kph) to Mobile, Alabama.
At this time, the center will be moving west of the coast by as much as 6 miles (10 kilometers).
The storm is likely to bring sustained winds of up to 140 mph (205 kph).
