Flash Flood Emergency issued for Greater Houston area

The National Hurricane Center said the eye of then-Category 4 hurricane made landfall about 10 p.m. on Friday about 30 miles northeast of Corpus Christi between Port Aransas and Port O'Connor, bringing with it 130 mph sustained winds and flooding rains.

Fueled by warm Gulf of Mexico waters, Harvey grew rapidly, accelerating from a Category 1 early Friday morning to a Category 4 by evening. Its transformation from an unnamed storm to a life-threatening behemoth took only 56 hours. Although it has weakened considerably, it still poses a major threat to flood-prone parts of southeast Texas.

Over 25 to 35 inches of rain is possible across parts of southeast Texas.
