Highlights:
  • Hurricane Harvey may have reduced to a meagre depression but the post flood devestation has just begun. Only yesterday the news of explosion at a chemical plant in Houston, Texas, rocked the world. Unfortunately, the reports suggest that there could be more explosions at the chemical plant site because of the flooding in the area and the power outage. Citizens in the area are advised to practice extreme caution and beware of the hazards in the surrounding. Threats have also been issued for the wildlife that has been washed ashore due to Harvey.
  • Amidst all the chaos that's being ensued in the aftermath of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey, one of the biggest fear has been revealed right now. What was being speculated as a possibility earlier has turned into a reality and is no less than a nightmare. Blasts have recently been heard at Arkema Chemical Plant in Houston, Texas. The situation of the plant was said to be unstable post the flash floods and torrential rains because of the power outage. Apparently, electricity was used to keep the tank cool that was filled with the chemicals. The loss of electricity has led to this explosion, posing serious threat to the people living in the area. People are advised to exercise extreme caution in the wake of such events. Harvey has so far claimed 30 lives with reports of new events unfolding sporadically after the storm has moved to Louisiana.
  • The destruction spree of Tropical Storm Harvey just doesn't seem to end. While Texas is still fighting its way out of the misery and the devestation caused by the deluge and record-breaking rainfall from Harvey, the Tropical Storm is on its way up ahead and has made a second landfall in Louisiana. Harvey is expected to move further up north towards the states of Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi & Kentucky before reducing to a depression and ending its due course.
  • Harvey may have converted into a Tropical Storm from a category 4 Hurricane, but its mayhem continues upon Texas. As much as the situation is haunting & daunting, some of the ill-willed beings are looking at this time of grievance and solidarity as an opportunity to loot and steal people of their belongings. If reports are to be believed, these people are on the prowl, impersonating themselves as Homeland Security investigators and robbing people. The police have also imposed a curfew from 00:00 Hrs to 05:00 Hrs in the affected areas to bring the crime scene under control and have also been successful in nabbing a group of armed robbers attempting to hijack vehicles. Meanwhile, the deluge caused by the storm seems to be consistent, with Texas receiving a record breaking 51 inches of rainfall. The death toll has risen to 18 while almost 30,000 people have been displaced of their homes and are seeking temporary shelter. The Federal officers are saying that approximately 450,000 people are likely to apply for Federal Aid.
  • As Tropical Storm Harvey unleashes heavy rains in Texas, the cosatal areas of the state have been dangerously water-logged with many citizens rendered without power and other basic neccessities. It is also reported that at least 10 lives have been lost so far due to the deluge caused by the storm and more life-threatening conditions are likely to follow as more rain is expected to fall in the area. People who are out of the danger zone are advised not to drive back in towards the catastrophe-ridden areas. Evacuation process is going on round the clock.
  • As Houston, Texas, tries get back up on its feet after Tropical Storm Harvey drenched the city with 40 inches of rainfall and amidst speculations of receiving more than 50 inches of rainfall in the coming days, the people in the city are advised to move to the rooftop rather than the attic unless they have "an axe or means to breakthrough". The conditions are grim with he National Weather Service (NWS) stating “catastrophic flooding in the Houston metropolitan area is expected to worsen and could become historic” whilst issuing a flash flood warning. However, in between all the chaos, President Donald Trump has decided to visit the catastrophe-ridden state to take a stock of the situation.
  • Tropical Storm Harvey has finally announced it's arrival in Houston, Texas with 40 inches of rainfall. Although, reduced to a tropical storm now from the earlier Category 4 catastrophic hurricane, it still threatens the area with flash floods and heavy rainfalls. Citizens in Houston are advised against travelling to any place. Harvey is expected to last anywhere between four to five days and officials say that Harvey is still capable of causing destruction through floods and rainfall. The torpical storm has also been successful in claiming lives of at least two people so far has left about 338,000 homes with out electricity.
  • While it's a sign of relief that Hurricane Harvey's intensity has been reduced to that of a Tropical Storm with winds blowing at 75Mph after the second landfall, it's an irrefutable fact that Harvey has also caused massive destruction and has been successful in claiming a life and injuring at least 10 others, on the Texas coast. Officials have advised the residents of the area of Port Lavaca and Port Aransas to stay alert and out of the area as the perimeter is still vulnerable to possible strom threat. They're also surveying the area to assess the damage caused by the hurricane. So far, 300,000 people are rendered without electricity and people in Corpus Christi have been issued with an advisory to drink boiled water.
  • Amidst the reports where the hurricane and surge warnings have been revoked for Hurricane Harvey in Southern Texas, reports also suggest that the storm has washed ashore many Alligators & Crocodiles as well. It is therefore advised to keep a check of the surroundings if anyone is stepping out and be careful & cautious of these creatures.
  • While the Southern part of Texas may have been declared out of danger, the possibility of destruction in the Central and Northern Texas still looms large. If the reports are to be believed, the central & northern Texas could still face dangerous flash flooding and life threatening conditions. It is advised to follow the safety procedures as advised by the authorities to stay out of danger.
  • As more reports of Hurricane Harvey emerge, it is being said that the Harvey has weakened to the levels where the hurricane and surge warnings are being removed for some parts that include areas to the south of Baffin Bay.
  • Terrible news coming in from Texas. Officials are saying that structures have collapsed due to the impact of Hurricane Harvey in the City of Rockport, with people trapped inside them.
  • Latest reports coming in suggest that Hurricane Harvey has further been downgraded to a Category 2 Hurricane from what was earlier a Category 4 & 3 Hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. The windspeeds have further reduced from 130Mph to 110Mph.
  • Texas for now can heave a little sigh of relief as Hurricane Harvey has downgraded to Category3 from a Category4 Hurricane. Winds are now blowing at a rate of 125 Mph than the earlier speed of 130Mph. The improvement is not significant but nevertheless important and should hopefully be a positive sign for things to come. The landfall is to be credited with the dip in the category and the windspeed of the Hurricane.
  • The coastal areas of Texas are now expected to receive up to 40 inches of rainfall as opposed to the earlier estimated volume of 18 to 25 inches.
  • Hurricane Harvey finally touches down in Texas. The first to experience this monster of a Hurricane is the City of Rockport in Texas. Extreme wind warnings have been issued by the authorities with wind speeds reaching up to a whopping 130Mph.
  • As it was expected earlier that Hurricane Harvey would made a landfall as a category 3 hurricane have been proven incorrect Hurricane Harvey is growing stronger and weather reports suggest that the mighty and deadly Hurricane is now being categorized and has made landfall as a category 4 Hurricane. 
 
  • Knowledge is the best way to keep problems at bay. So here's some information about the incoming Hurricane Harvey: 
  1. With the latest trends in, Hurricane Harvey is going to last for quite some time. If some projections are to be believed, the storm could last till Tuesday or Wednesday over Southeast Texas.
  2. At least 2-3 Feet of rainfall is expected in the areas in the path of Hurricane Harvey. These areas will also experience flash flooding and river flooding.
  3. A storm surge is the ocean water that gets pulled in from the ocean by the Hurricane and is toppled over to the land by the strong wind currents. With Hurricane Harvey, a storm surge of 12 Feet is anticipated and the biggest surge will take place to the right of the center of the storm. A storm surge measuring 12 Feet high is enough to immerse a 12 Feet high structure completely.
  4. Hurricane Harvey is expected to make a landfall on Friday night or early Saturday morning. However, the landfall is insignificant and we advise people to evacuate immediately because the Hurricane would be around for long.
  5. If the speculations are to be believed, this won't be it for the Hurricane. Hurricane Harvey could likely make a second landfall as the Hurricane's center may slide to the ocean, build up all over again and come for another strike. Floods, storm surge and strong wind will ensue.
  6. Unfortunately, the jet streams in the atmosphere in Texas just aren't present. So there's nothing that can force the Hurricane out of the land and back into the sea and this is the reason for Harvey's long-term existence.
 
  • So far only the outer bands of Hurricane Harvey have touched the coast of Texas and the destruction is evident. It is being speculated that Harvey is going to transform into a Category 3 Hurricane (Major Hurricane) that can cause major havoc to the region affected by it. By no means, Harvey is a mediocre Hurricane. With the National Hurricane Centre releasing a statement saying that the areas affected will remain uninhabited for months and intense threat to life and damage to properties are imminent, the areas in the vicinty of the Hurricane will remain flooded and the natives may be rendered without electricity and proper facilities for days to come. Reinforcing the statement of NHC, FEMA has said that "Texas is about to have a very significant disaster." The Hurricane is also a first on the list of natural disaster of the Trump regime. This will also be a litmus test for the 45th POTUS.
 
  • Intensity and strength of the category 2 Hurricane Harvey is increasing constantly and the conditions in the areas to be affected look grim. While the evacuations are ordered, the damage that is being predicted is catastrophic.

In the light of recent events, Harvey is expected to hit the Texas Coast as a Hurricane on late Friday or Saturday. According to the forecasters, Hurricane Harvey would have catastrophic effects. Warnings have been issued and residents are told to voluntarily evacuate the area. It will cause heavy rainfall which will be life-threatening. The National Hurricane Center said “some areas could get as much as 35 inches of rainfall from Hurricane Harvey and many will get more than that.” Harvey's strength in the Gulf of Mexico is raising an alarm with strong winds. The Torrential rainfall due to the hurricane will lead to catastrophic flash flooding. Thursday night saw highways packed with cars as coastal residents made their way up north.  
 
24 August 2017
According to the reports of National Hurricane Center (NHC), Tropical Storm Harvey is expected to strengthen in the Gulf of Mexico and draw towards the Texas coast on the afternoon or night of August 24th, 2017. Heavy rainfall is expected in Southeast Louisiana over the weekend. A hurricane watch has been issued for a portion of the Texas coast, from north of Port Mansfield to San Luis Pass, including Corpus Christi and Victoria. The risk of storm-surge flooding, high surf with battering waves and strong winds looms large on the coast of Texas as Harvey is expected to strengthen into a hurricane. According to Bobby Graves, the manager of Hurricane Watch Net, “The month of August is no stranger to hurricanes, especially historic ones” and “Hopefully, Harvey will not make the history books!” When Tropical Storm Harvey was located in the Eastern Caribbean last week, the Caribbean Emergency and Weather Net activated alert on 3.815MHz. If Storm Harvey becomes Category 1 hurricane (as expected), it would be the first to come ashore in Texas since Hurricane Ike in 2008. The National Weather Service forecasts 15 inches of rain (40cm) and winds scaling up to 75mph (120kmph). According to Jacob Meisel, chief weather analyst of Bespoke Weather Services, the main danger with this storm does not seem to be wind but the amount of rainfall; and it looks set to stall over the Texas coast.
