All spaghetti plots of Tropical Wave Harvey are converging on spinning out over San Antonio. Gulf water temp at Corpus Christi area is 89F, so Harvey may strengthen quickly as it travels to us.

Glad that our house is at the top of a hill on the north side of town. Weather folks are predicting feet of rain wherever it spins out. I remember Allison in Houston a while back floating empty oil tanker semi trucks.

This is definitely going to be interesting to see how this plays out. I'm right behind Park North and also glad to be at close to the top of a hill.

Looks to be predicted right below Houston. Hopefully it'll miss us.

Yea, my wife is supposed to go over to her mom's Friday in Deer Park for the weekend, she may not now.
I am not worried here in Katy, but Deer Park, floods way to easy.

LermeLaPorte, guess you are in La Porte? Used to work for their EMS service. Sister-in-law lives in La Porte, with the MIL and BIL in Deer Park.

Problem is with the prediction is it is showing 10-15" of rain from Corpus to New Orleans and 150 miles inland.
We are going to get some rain.
Hopefully no storm surge problems from this one for those on the coast or bay.

I live in New Jersey and they were right on the money, even a week out, for Sandy. So sometimes they earn their pay

I learned to disregard all storm hype and predictions after Andrew '92.

Anyone here live in Galveston? I wonder how bad it's going to be there?

I was in south FL when Andrew hit, very strong winds but the hurricane had little rain. The amount of water in the streets looked like a normal 10 minute rain shower.

Hurricane Harvey will bring lots of flooding to certain parts of the region that will make it even worse and much longer to get the power restored. I saw electrical linesmen a far away from Virginia in south FL to restore power after Andrew.
