Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Texas coast late Friday, making landfall at Port Aransas and bringing a “life-threatening storm surge,” that could make it the most powerful storm to hit the Lone Star State in more than a decade.
Harvey, upgraded Friday to Category 4, was packing 130 mph winds and a surge that could send floodwaters roaring 6 to 12 feet above ground level along the coast, according to the National Hurricane Center. As much as three feet of rain could fall in the hardest-hit areas.
“At the request of the Governor of Texas, I have signed the Disaster Proclamation, which unleashes the full force of government help!” President Donald Trump tweeted late Friday after speaking with Gov. Greg Abbott.
Authorities are anticipating extensive damage, including “structural damage to sturdy buildings” and “complete destruction of mobile homes,” according to a bulletin from the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Corpus Christi. Damage is likely to be “greatly accentuated by large airborne projectiles. Locations may be uninhabitable for weeks or months.” At least one county, Nueces, is expected to be without power for up to a week.
In Rockport, part of a high school’s roof collapsed, reported.
Corpus Christi officials sought to evacuate stranded residents on city buses.
