I am about 55 - 60 miles inland, NE of Victoria. The prediction is TS level winds here tonite. The county next door has hurricane wind warning.
North of Matagorda Bay by about 45 miles.
WADSWORTH – The South Texas Project nuclear power plant in Wadsworth has plans in place as Hurricane Harvey creeps towards the Texas Gulf Coast. Up to 250 employees will endure Hurricane Harvey from inside the plant.
At press time, both units at the nuclear power facility continue to operate at full power as Hurricane Harvey approaches.
STP’s Corporate Communications and External Affairs manager Buddy Eller anticipates as many as members of a pre-planned storm crew to hunker down inside the plant and closely monitor it for any damage.
If sustained winds exceed 73 mph, officials said they will take steps to shut down the units.

Its a big storm..
The northernmost of the three bays is Matagordo and the nuclear power plant sticks down in the bay.
Highest winds might miss it by 25 miles but Matagordo looks like it will get the worst storm surge.
