Hurricane Harvey

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas – Harvey is now a hurricane and may be a Category 3 before anticipated landfall in Corpus Christi.

While Montgomery County is not in the eye of the storm, residents need to keep an eye on it -- we are on the dirty side of Friday evening's landfall, which means we can expect significant rain and potential flooding.

"Even though it won't be a direct impact with hurricane-force winds, we will still see heavy rainfall," said Darren Hess, director of the the Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. "After Harvey makes landfall, his trek is uncertain. He's expected to drift east. In Montgomery County, we can see in excess of 10-plus inches of rain."
