Hurricane Harvey has strengthened into a Category 4 Hurricane as it churns toward the Gulf coast of Texas.  SUSTAINED Winds of 125 mph with gusts to 160 mph are heading into the area of Corpus Christi.  The eye of the hurricane is only about 60 miles offshore, and it is now TOO LATE to evacuate.

 As of 7:00 PM eastern Time, Doppler Radar shows winds of 136 Miles per Hour in the southern Eye Wall of the hurricane, and those winds will continue to INCREASE in the 60 miles of water remaining before the Eye comes ashore!

Storm surge of twelve to eighteen feet.  This means the power of the wind is pushing surface water toward the shore and the water is piling-up onto itself.  A storm surge of 12-18 feet means the dry ground itself will have 12-18 feet of water covering it just from the wind-driven water!

Rainfall is another issue.  The storm's forward-motion is expected to "stall" once it makes landfall.  That means it will simply linger over southern Texas, dumping loads and loads of rain.  Many areas will get twenty inches of rain in 48 hours.  Others, however, are projected to receive SIXTY (60) inches . . . . five FEET of rain in that same 48 hours!

Flooding from this deluge will wipe buildings off their foundations.  Very little is likely to survive.
