Texas is bracing itself for the storm of the decade as Hurricane Harvey barrels towards the state, which is expecting catastrophic flooding, power outages, winds up to 130mph and 30 inches of rain.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Harvey has ‘rapidly intensified’ and experts say weather conditions have created the perfect recipe for the monster Category 3 hurricane to form and crash into Texas late on Friday night.
The national guard has been mobilized amid fears over the life-threatening flash flooding, which poses ‘a grave risk’ to Texans as the hurricane is expected to be the strongest to hit the United States mainland in 12 years since Hurricane Wilma in 2005.
Local mayors have warned residents ‘to get out of Dodge’ as flooded waters could cause alligators to wash up on people’s front door steps.
President Donald Trump is standing by and monitoring the hurricane, ready to provide necessary resources to the gulf region, the White House said on Thursday. Trump is asking citizens to plan ahead for the storm.
