Hurricane Harvey intensifies to Category 4

As the storm nearly approaches Texas, Hurricane Harvey already rose to a strong Category 4, expected to bring high winds, heavy rain, and even power losses, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

The NHC moved the storm category to number 4 on Friday, with sustained winds of 130 miles an hour.

Reports by the National Weather Service in Houston say it could make landfall late Friday or early Saturday between Port Aransas and Port O’Connor. Its threatening combination of wind and water could leave wide swaths of South Texas “uninhabitable for weeks or months,” the NWS added.

At a news conference, Texas Governor Greg Abbott have stated that the said the storm was building up to be “more dangerous” than previous hurricanes as it will most likely force a widespread flooding in Texas that could last for at least “a week if not longer.”

The governor furthered he had asked US President Donald Trump for a federal disaster declaration.

“My top goal is to be able to make it through this storm in a way in which we lose no lives,” Abbott said. “Put your life first and your property second.”
