Hurricane Harvey is projected to make landfall at a Category 3 somewhere near Corpus Christi on Friday, with the added threat of extreme flooding inland as the storm stalls. This is a serious situation that could last well into next week.
Anyone with operations along rivers or in low-lying area even as far north as San Antonio are encouraged to move livestock and rolling stock such as tractors and other heavy machinery to higher ground now.
