Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a disaster declaration on Saturday, July 25, as Hurricane Hanna made landfall on Padre Island near Port Mansfield, Texas. According to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Hanna made landfall as a Category 1 storm at approximately 17:00 (local time) with maximum sustained winds of 145 kph (90 mph). The storm is expected to rapidly decrease in intensity as it moves inland along a west-southwest trajectory at 13 kph (8 mph). In addition to wind-related damage, storm surges will continue to pose a threat to coastal communities with flash flood warnings in effect from Corpus Christi to Brownsville.

Associated tornadoes are possible Saturday and overnight in parts of the lower to middle Texas plain.   

Strong winds, heavy rainfall, and associated flooding, and dangerous seas are likely to affect southern Texas coastal areas until Monday, July 27. Associated disruptions to transportation, power, communications, and business are to be expected in the near term.

Advice

Those in areas forecast to be affected by the storm system are advised to monitor local weather reports, confirm flight reservations, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, anticipate adverse weather and power and transportation disruptions, and avoid walking or driving through floodwaters.
