    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Hurricane Watch is in effect for Bee, Goliad, Jim Wells, Live
      Oak, and Victoria
    - a storm surge watch and Hurricane Watch are in effect for
      Aransas, Calhoun, Kleberg, Nueces, Refugio, and San Patricio

      south-southeast of Port Oconnor TX
    - 21.9n 92.6w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement northwest or 325 degrees at 2 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Depression Harvey continues to move very slowly over the
southern Gulf of Mexico. Harvey is expected to continue to
strengthen as it approaches the Texas coast Thursday into Friday.
Tropical storm force winds could approach coastal areas in the
coastal Bend as early as Friday morning.

Heavy rainfall is expected through much of the area with rainfall
totals of 6 to 12 inches possible across the southern coastal Bend
and 10 to 15 inches possible across the northern coastal Bend and
Victoria Crossroads. Isolated higher amounts are possible. Lesser
amounts are expected further west. These numbers and locations are
subject to change depending on the exact Point of landfall along the
Texas coast. Flash flooding is possible with these high rainfall
totals. The heaviest rains will occur Thursday night through
Saturday.

Peak storm surge inundation is generally expected to be 4 to 6 feet
above ground level along and to the right of where the center
crosses the coast. Impacts would be felt along the barrier islands
and into the inland bays and waterways. Isolated locations could see
slightly higher inundation.

Tornadoes are possible as rainbands move onshore Thursday night
through Saturday.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across the coastal Bend. Potential impacts
include:
    - moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and
      rescues.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter
      currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially
      in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals, and
      ditches overflow.
    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations.
      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid
      inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as
      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions
      become hazardous. Some Road and bridge closures.

* Surge:
prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across across the middle Texas coast and barrier islands. Potential
impacts in this area include:
    - areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by
      waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast.
    - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become
      weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low
      spots.
    - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and
      numerous rip currents.
    - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
      Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in
      unprotected anchorages.

Elsewhere across south Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

* Wind:
prepare for life-threatening wind having possible extensive impacts
across the coastal Bend. Potential impacts in this area
include:
    - considerable roof damage to sturdy buildings, with some having
      window, door, and garage door failures leading to structural
      damage. Mobile homes severely damaged, with some destroyed.
      Damage accentuated by airborne projectiles. Locations may be
      uninhabitable for weeks.
    - Many large trees snapped or uprooted along with fences and
      roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Several bridges, causeways, and
      access routes impassable.
    - Large areas with power and communications outages.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
south Texas. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.

Elsewhere across south Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations:
if you are exceptionally vulnerable to wind or
water hazards from tropical systems, consider voluntary evacuation.
Relocate to a predetermined shelter or safe destination.

* Other preparedness information:
Padre Island National Seashore will close its beaches to driving at
noon on Thursday.

Texas a & M - Corpus Christi has issued a mandatory evacuation for its
Campus. All students and residents must vacate the Campus by 7 am on
Thursday.

Texas a & M - Kingsville will be closing at 5 PM Thursday and will
remain closed through at least Sunday.

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

    - 21.6n 92.6w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement northwest or 320 degrees at 2 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Depression Harvey continues to move very slowly over the
southern Gulf of Mexico. Harvey is expected to continue to strengthen
as it approaches the Texas coast Thursday into Friday. Tropical storm
force winds could approach coastal areas in the coastal Bend as early
as Friday morning.

Heavy rainfall is expected through much of the area with rainfall
totals of 6 to 12 inches possible along the middle Texas coast and
Victoria Crossroads. Lesser amounts are expected further west. These
numbers and locations are subject to change depending on the exact
Point of landfall along the Texas coast. Flash flooding is possible
with these high rainfall totals. The heaviest rains will occur
Thursday night through Saturday.

Peak storm surge inundation is generally expected to be 4 to 6 feet
above ground level along and to the right of where the center crosses
the coast. Impacts would be felt along the barrier islands and into
the inland bays and waterways. Isolated locations could see slightly
higher inundation.

Tornadoes are possible as rainbands move onshore Thursday night
through Saturday.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
the coastal Bend. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* Flooding rain:
prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across the coastal Bend. Potential impacts include:
    - moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and
      rescues.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter
      currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially
      in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals, and
      ditches overflow.
    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations.
      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid
      inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as
      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions
      become hazardous. Some Road and bridge closures.

* Surge:
prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across the middle Texas coast and barrier islands. Potential
impacts in this area include:
    - areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by
      waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast.
    - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become
      weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low
      spots.
    - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and
      numerous rip currents.
    - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
      Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in
      unprotected anchorages.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
south Texas. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Depression Harvey continues to move very slowly over the
southern Gulf of Mexico. Harvey is expected to continue to strengthen
as it approaches the Texas coast Thursday into Friday. Tropical storm
force winds could approach coastal areas in the coastal Bend as early
as Friday morning.

Heavy rainfall is expected through much of the area with rainfall
totals of 10 to 15 inches possible along the middle Texas coast and
Victoria Crossroads. Lesser amounts are expected further west. These
numbers and locations are subject to change depending on the exact
Point of landfall along the Texas coast. Flash flooding is possible
with these high rainfall totals. The heaviest rains will occur
Thursday night through Saturday.

Peak storm surge inundation is generally expected to be 4 to 6 feet
above ground level along and to the right of where the center crosses
the coast. Impacts would be felt along the barrier islands and into
the inland bays and waterways. Isolated locations could see slightly
higher inundation.

Tornadoes are possible as rainbands move onshore Thursday night
through Saturday.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
the coastal Bend. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* Flooding rain:
prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across the coastal Bend. Potential impacts include:
    - moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and
      rescues.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter
      currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially
      in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals, and
      ditches overflow.
    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations.
      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid
      inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as
      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions
      become hazardous. Some Road and bridge closures.

* Surge:
prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across the middle Texas coast and barrier islands. Potential
impacts in this area include:
    - areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by
      waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast.
    - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become
      weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low
      spots.
    - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and
      numerous rip currents.
    - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
      Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in
      unprotected anchorages.

Elsewhere across south Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across the
coastal Bend. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.


Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations:

If you are exceptionally vulnerable to wind or
water hazards from tropical systems, consider voluntary evacuation.
Relocate to a predetermined shelter or safe destination.

* Other preparedness information:

Padre Island National Seashore will close its beaches to driving at
noon on Thursday.

Texas a & M - Corpus Christi has issued a mandatory evacuation for its
Campus. All students and residents must vacate the Campus by 7 am on
Thursday.

Texas a & M - Kingsville will be closing at 5 PM Thursday and will
remain closed through at least Sunday.

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.
