NWS: Hurricane Hanna Warnings Issued for Texas

 

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Tropical Storm Hanna continues to track westward late Friday and is forecast to become a category one hurricane before making landfall early Saturday.

The storm system and flooding will remain well south of the Concho Valley and West Central Texas.

Hanna continues to strengthen, with sustained winds of 50 mph. Convection continues to increase around the edges of the circulation, and convection near the core is expected to increase tonight and Saturday.

Hanna is now expected to make landfall just above hurricane criteria on Saturday, so hurricane warnings have been issued from Baffin Bay to Mesquite Bay.

The primary threat with this system remain the potential for very heavy rainfall.

Rainfall totals of 5 to 10 inches are likely over the Coastal Plains and eastern Brush Country with 2 to 5 inches farther northwest.

Isolated amounts of up to 15 inches are possible near the track of the storm.

The heaviest rain will occur from Saturday morning through Sunday night. A storm surge warning has also been issued for the Coastal Bend and middle

Texas coast where storm surge of 2 to 4 feet is likely.

In typical Yantis Green journalism fashion, he sensationalizes a story, this time by calling a tropical storm as a hurricane... and then proceeds to copy and paste the story verbatim from the NWS forecast.
