Strong winds, flash flooding possible for southern Texas, Hawaii

Strong winds, flash flooding possible for southern Texas, Hawaii”

Heavy rainfall is expected across the area throughout the afternoon.

The center warned of storm surges as high as 5 feet along Texas' southern coast and said the upper coasts of Texas and Louisiana could expect 3-5 inches of rain.

Some slight additional strengthening is possible over the next few hours before Hanna makes landfall later this afternoon into early evening in south Texas, approximately 3 to 7 p.m. ET. hitting the middle of the state between Corpus Christi and Brownsville.

Video footage on Twitter of Port Aransas in Nueces County, Texas showed grey skies and lashing waves that had already engulfed a beach ahead of the storm's landfall. It was moving west about 7 miles per hour, and the center of the hurricane was expected to make landfall Saturday afternoon or evening, the hurricane center said, but coastal residents will begin to feel powerful winds before then. In Corpus Christi, a city of 325,000, officials closed libraries and museums as residents braced for the storm, local media reported.

As Hurricane Hanna approaches, Corpus Christi Mayor Joe McComb said he felt certain that the region is prepared to handle both the storm and the pandemic. "Even when you're in the house, I recommend wearing a mask if you're in crowded conditions" McComb told The Texas Tribune.

About 10,000 people in the county have been infected with the virus; more than one-fifth of those cases were reported in the past week. The past week has also been the county's deadliest of the pandemic.

"If there's any benefit to be gained from this, it's that people have to stay at home for a weekend", Trevino said.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said earlier in the week that the Texas Division of Emergency Management was preparing teams to help communities that are affected by the storm.

"On the forecast track, the center of Gonzalo will approach the southern Windward Islands tonight and then move across the islands on Saturday and over the eastern Caribbean Sea on Sunday", said the NHC. The barrelling twister is packing sustained winds of 80mph according to the latest National Hurricane Centre report, and it is heading straight for land. Grenada and Tobago have issued tropical storm watches and the NHC said that "interests elsewhere in the Windward Islands should monitor the progress of this system".

Meanwhile, in the Pacific, Hurricane Douglas headed towards Hawaii with wind speeds of about 175km/h.

"Rapid weakening is expected after Hanna moves inland". Those with high temperatures or with a travel or exposure history will either be isolated at that shelter or taken to a different site.
