Wow, this thing could hang around the Texas coast for almost a week - that is insane!

As of 9am, 110mph, 948mb(i suppose they had to adjust the 946mb dropsone).

Full update at 10am cdt. The hurricane hunters will be flying in there almost nonstop til landfall.

I heard that Corpus Cristi just now issued a mandatory evacuation....a little late considering they are already seeing gusts at tropical storm force. Can anyone in the area verify this?

Hard to forget lingering storms. Allison flooded a good bit of the Houston area. Near 40 inches of rain in five days.

Near the beach, and near the water winds are higher. The airport is a bit inland.

NAS Corpus Cristi is showing gusts to 37 mph.

All seven Texas counties on the coast from Corpus Christi to the western end of Galveston Island have ordered mandatory evacuations of tens of thousands of residents from all low-lying areas. In four of those counties, officials ordered their entire county evacuated and warned those who stayed behind that no one could be guaranteed rescue. Voluntary evacuations have been urged for Corpus Christi itself and for the Bolivar Peninsula, a sand spit near Galveston where many homes were washed away by the storm surge of Hurricane Ike in 2008.

I don't think cardboard is going to cut it!!

Color me a little surprised at the drop in MB from when I went to sleep last night till this AM....

ALMOST 35MB drop in less than 24 hours is pretty strong!!

I still don't think it will get above a 3 like I said yesterday but it may be a strong three instead of a weak three.....

I would move to high ground that's for sure and to all my TX friends be careful and you are in my thoughts!!!!

Good site.

The National Hurricane Center and your local NOAA weather office are the primary source for up to date information:

Storm2k has a very active forum right now with great info from professional meteorologists.

Corpus Cristi is now experiencing tropical storm conditions with gusts of 50+mph being reported at the Naval Air Station.

Thus the clash between the mighty state of Texas and the great beast of mother nature, Hurricane Harvey (CAT3).

Stay Safe all.

Great links, folks.

I've been watching the squalls come in @ weather underground, I'm not to far from the center of this radar loop.

The wind has picked up and we've had a few good gusts to go along with the few squalls we've already had pass through.

I'm actually at work for now and had to run a few errands. Grocery store parking lots are full and gas stations have lines or bags over pumps. Will be heading home soon and hunkering down for the duration most likely.

TWC shows a car submerged in water at Port Aransas. Are there people trapped in there or were they rescued?

Update: Police are pulling up to the car but there is no one in it. Hopefully, they escaped unharmed. The headlights are still on. This is right over the JFK bridge.

It's been raining here for a couple of hours. Not too heavy but steady.

I hope you're home now, Jaded. There is a tornado warning for Texas City. Isn't that your area?

Not far from me, the Tornado warning came through mostly on Galveston and closer coastal areas; Texas City included. I didn't get one to my phone so I guess I'm far enough inland for it not to be a concern.

I'm gonna be heading home after this current squall line passes.

The TranStar cameras can see the water to the side of the Causeway, and it's not over the train trestle, but it is getting a bit higher.

I've seen facebook posts of people on the west end of the island showing the water coming up the access roads, and of course the obligatory surfers out on Seawall.
