Hurricane Harvey Slams Into Texas

By Amelia Wang

The most powerful hurricane to hit the United States in over a decade made its way into Texas early Saturday morning. According to the NHC Atlantic, it made landfall at 10 PM CDT as a Category 4 hurricane near Rockport, Texas, with maximum wind speeds of 130 mph and minimum pressures of 938 mb. The National Weather Service believes that Harvey’s impact on South Gulf areas will be devastating for weeks, as it has already left 200,000 without power. President Donald Trump also tweeted Saturday morning that he is “closely monitoring Harvey from camp David,” and has already signed a disaster declaration for Texas.
