Tom Johnson Weather Update


*Harvey has now developed into a Category 1 Hurricane* with sustained winds
of 80 MPH. It is showing a much larger & stronger group of outer
rainbands with T-storms embedded, a tightening of the rotation, a clear
eye, and shows to be rapidly gaining strength to what is forecast to be a
CAT 3 Hurricane by landfall with winds estimated to be in the 113-138 MPH
Just look at the area of the Gulf being covered with its current 12:15 PM
status in the graphic below.
With the size and strength, many low lying areas from Corpus to San Antonio
to West of Houston are in volunteer or mandatory evacuation as the storm
surge and rain estimates of 15-20 inches with locally heavier amounts to
upwards of 30 inches will place many roads under 4-6 feet of water. All
State of Texas Emergency Management Centers are in a state of full
activation or partial depending on their location. Assets are being
deployed to the targeted areas from all across the state. No contra flow is
in effect, but IH 37 will be the first to be declared as it is the first
evac route from the primary Harvey impact area. If a person is NOT out of
the impact area by noon on Friday, they risk being isolated for 3-5 days.
 This drain off will take 3 weeks or more if we get no added rainfall.
