Hurricane Harvey

Submitted by JoeFink on August 26th, 2017 at 7:40 AM
Harvey is hammering Texas today and is projected to stay in the state for several days. If you're going down to that area, you may face some travel issues, so good luck and be safe.

Won't see a drop. It looks like Harvey will act more like a drunken sailor causing damage in a bar, getting thrown out and moving to the next to repeat. It may bounce along the gulf coast for a bit and one hurricane forecast model has it hitting New Orleans.

The forecast right now is calling for a high of 82(!!) next Saturday, and not a day above 90 this whole week. It's usually still triple digits this time of year, so this is going to be a nice surprise for the northerners heading down for the game.

The storm, now, will have no effect on the Dallas-Arlington area.

Thread jack: buy now or scalp on game day? I might've missed a post. I liked that feature.

Ask me how many Tornado warnings my phone had last night. Over 5. If you guys can keep everyone in your prayers down here that would be great. We still have 3 days to go with this storm. Yes Dallas will be fine but there are a lot of us Wolverines in the path.

I'm in Seabrook right near the bay. So far no major flooding or storm surge. Just raining and some wind. Of course the question is where the storm goes and how long it sits over Houston... major flooding here is still a very real possibility. While my kids have never experienced a snow day, they've had their share of hurricane days in the 10 years we've been down here.

Yes! Brutal between the phone and the alarm system. We live in Richmond/Katy, so considering what we've seen this morning, we got pretty lucky.

One touched down on the East side of 99 by the Westpark Tollway, and we're just on the West side of 99. Too damn close! We have some friends that weren't so lucky, unfortunately.

Prayers for everyone dealing with Harvey, especially the tornadoes and heavy rain... latest forecasts calling for 30-40" in spots now!

A tornado touched down about 2 miles from me and knocked out power for a few hours. Lots of rain. I wouldn't plan on coming to this area this week. If projections hold true, even if you can get to the airport getting around town won't be advisable.

DFW should be just fine. I hope I'll be able to leave town to get up to the game.

"Make Michigan Great Again! Drain The Swamp!" (FLA Stadium aka Swamp)
Was Considering Manufacturing This TShirt for The Trip, but Now, with 30 inches of rain, massive flooding, I cancelled production. Also, considered "Hurricane Harbaugh: HAIL Forecasted!"
OR "Hurricane (Steve) Harvey Anticipated Landfall in Columbia!" Too Soon?

Live in Katy but spend most of today driving in from dropping off eldest kid at her college.  There were bands of rain and then times where it was scarry calm.  Made it but the worst of the rain and flooding is south and west of Houston down towards Victoria and Corpus Christi.  Been through several bad storms this one is probably going to be the worst on total destruction and chaos.
