Strengthening Harvey forecast to slam Texas coast as first major hurricane in U.S. since 2005

Strengthening Harvey forecast to slam Texas coast as first major hurricane in U.S. since 2005 | 24 Aug 2017 | Harvey rapidly intensified Thursday morning in the central Gulf of Mexico, and officially became a hurricane early in the afternoon. The extremely dangerous storm is predicted to strengthen further and plow into Southeast Texas Friday as the first major hurricane, rated Category 3 or higher (on the 1-5 Saffir-Simpson intensity scale), to strike U.S. soils in 12 years. An incredible amount of rain, 15 to 25 inches with isolated amounts up to 35 inches, is predicted along the middle and upper Texas coast, because the storm is expected to stall and unload torrential downpours for four to six straight days. Marshall Shepherd, a past-president of the American Meteorological Society, tweeted that he feared an "epic flood catastrophe."
