Harvey currently, as a tropical depression

Today Harvey is like a tropical depression in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico after regenerating. The main threat is that it could hit the United States as a hurricane. Currently moving in northwest direction at a speed of 15km / h. It is located at a distance of 800km from Port Oconnor, Texas, in a southeast direction.

Part of the Mexican coast and the State of Texas are under surveillance due to the strong storm, the other northernmost part of Texas hurricane watch now posted. According to his trajectory patterns, Harvey is heading for the Texas coast on Friday afternoon. The rains that Harvey could dump could result in flooding and be dangerous to people, experts said.

For the next 48/72 hours, Harvey would be a hurricane according to the predictions

According to the estimates that can be made, observable in the image, heavy rains will fall in areas that are usually dry. It will also cause large waves and tides that will affect the coast of Texas, Louisiana, and northeast Mexico. It should also be noted that the origin of Harvey is in the remnant of the tropical storm that was generated last week in the Caribbean.

This ninth hurricane season in the Caribbean began in April, with Tropical Storm Arlene. It happened a month earlier than usual. This one has also been followed by others, such as Bret, Cindy, another storm that did not get to be nicknamed, Don, Emily and Franklin, of which we were commenting.

The hurricane season that officially begins on June 1 and ends on November 30, has until today 8 storms, 8 depressions, 2 hurricanes, and of which 3 of these have made landfall. We will continue commenting on any eventuality that occurs.
