Hurricane Harvey is gaining power in the Gulf of Mexico, barreling toward the Texas coast with wind speeds as high as 85 mph. The National Hurricane Center expects Harvey to hit the southern flank of Texas as a Category 3 hurricane on Friday night, with "life-threatening and devastating flooding." Forecasters predict that upon making landfall, the storm will stall until Tuesday and dump up to 35 inches of rain onto much of Texas.
In preparation for the hurricane I won't be able to update my journal until next week. Thanks for visiting and check back next week for more updates.
