Harvey slows over Texas as a Category 1 hurricane, bringing 1-3 feet of rain and potential for ‘catastrophic’ flooding
Nine hours after making landfall as a Category 4 storm, Harvey stalled over the Lone Star state, drawing energy from the Gulf of Mexico. At 7 a.m. local time the center of the hurricane was 20 miles west-southwest of the city of Victoria, with top sustained winds of 80 miles per hour. It is expected to weaken during the day to tropical storm status. Damage assessments are still in the early stages as dawn comes to the central Texas coast. The city of Rockport has suffered extensive damage. Harvey is the strongest storm to hit the U.S. in more than a decade, and forecasters warn that its most lethal effects are yet to come.
