Watches & Warnings

Hurricane Statement
Issued: 12:37 PM CDT Aug. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

This product covers south Texas

**tropical depression Harvey continues toward the Texas coast**


New information
---------------

* 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

* storm information:
    - about 520 miles southeast of Port Aransas TX or about 540 miles
      south-southeast of Port Oconnor TX
    - 21.5n 92.5w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement stationary

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

Hurricane hunter aircraft have found a closed circulation in what
was the remnants of Harvey, and have found strong enough winds to
categorize Harvey as a Tropical Depression. 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 Thursday night or 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.

Storm surge inundation is generally expected to be 4 to 6 feet along
the islands and into the bays. 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 locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across south Texas. Potential impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

* Surge:
prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across the middle Texas coast and the 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:
little to no impacts are anticipated at this time across south Texas.

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

* evacuations:

Watch/warning phase - 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:
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.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

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

Hurricane hunter aircraft have found a closed circulation in what
was the remnants of Harvey, and have found strong enough winds to
categorize Harvey as a Tropical Depression. 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 Thursday night or 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.

Storm surge inundation of up to 4 to 6 feet is possible along the islands
and into the bays. 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 and middle Texas coast. 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 locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
impacts across south Texas. Potential impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

* Surge:
prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across the middle Texas coast including the 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:
little to no impacts are anticipated at this time across south Texas.
Tornado threats are expected to increase Thursday night through Saturday.

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. If evacuating away from
the area or relocating to a nearby shelter, leave early before
weather conditions become hazardous.

* Other preparedness information:
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.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

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