BREAKING: Forecasters say Nicholas has strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane as it heads toward Texas landfall.
HOUSTON (AP) — Nicholas strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane Monday as it headed toward landfall along the Texas Gulf Coast and it was expected to bring heavy rain and floods to coastal areas from Mexico to storm-battered Louisiana .
Nicholas was centered roughly 45 miles (75 kilometers) southwest of Freeport, Texas, as of late Monday.ADVERTISEMENTTHIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. AP’s earlier story follows below.Tropical Storm Nicholas gathered strength Monday and threatened to blow ashore in Texas as a hurricane that could bring up to 20 inches of rain to parts of the Gulf Coast, including the same area hit by Hurricane Harvey in 2017 and
storm-battered Louisiana.Although the system was expected to generate only a fraction as much rain as Harvey, nearly all of the state’s coastline was under a tropical storm warning that included potential flash floods and urban flooding. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said authorities placed rescue teams and resources in the Houston area and along the coast.
Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said the system’s top sustained winds were 70 mph (110 kph), nearly hurricane strength and an increase of 10 mph (16 kph) from earlier in the day. If the winds hit 74 mph (119 kph), the storm would become a Category 1 hurricane. It was moving north-northeast at 12 mph (19 kph) and was predicted to make landfall late Monday night along the central Texas coast. headtopics.com
An automated station in Matagorda Bay registered a sustained wind of 55 mph (89 kph) with a gust of 71 mph (115 kph), the hurricane center reported.In flood-prone Houston, officials worried that heavy rain expected to arrive late Monday and early Tuesday could inundate streets and flood homes. Authorities deployed high-water rescue vehicles throughout the city and erected barricades at more than 40 locations that tend to flood, Mayor Sylvester Turner said.Read more: The Associated Press »

I honestly don't know which state I want destroyed more, FL or TX just to own the Cons. Over exaggerated, as usual. God must be angry at Texas. I wonder why? Goobenor Greg will of course get right on top of this by signing an executive order banning all masks during the recovery/rebuild and issuing free pizza vouchers to all citizen snitches who report any mask wearers. sarcasmisfun
Does this mean Gods about to punish Texas for its law on abortion or its laws restricting voting? Or both? 🤔🤔🤨🤨 I’m guessing tedcruz already left for Mexico again? 20-inches of rain! What’s the current situation… 😳 HurricaneNicholas | Drowning | Texas Gov. Abbot has pledged: PAPER TOWELS FOR ALL!
Even Jesus hates texasgov I will bet that Texas did nothing after the last hurricane to help the flooding situation....just like the energy problem...nothing. As the far right Evangelists would say if it happened in a Blue State..It's on them - these natural disasters for being so terrible and bad.
Nicholas strengthens into Category 1 hurricane before landfall in Texas: Latest forecastBREAKING: Nicholas has strengthened into a hurricane, with winds of 75 mph, ahead of making landfall in Texas . tedcruz wow I hate it here
My dm is open for those that have this questions in mind. status update........... + The hurricane came ashore on the eastern part of the Matagorda Peninsula, about 10 miles west southwest of Sargent Beach, Texas, with maximum winds of 75 mph; Nicholas was the 14th named storm of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season.
I am not feeling it. It is calm in Houston, Texas. I'd Rather They Had An Abortion Than Wishing They Had One Later. Texas being run by Republicans, I expect that it has adequate flood management infrastructure. If not, I would blame it on the cities within Texas run by TheDemocrats ! FEMA budgets dwindle into two hurricane events and 🔥 in the Western states; but Fed policy gets hung up while we consider $billions in humanitarian relief to a 20 year miss in Afghanistan. … Politics over protecting the backs of small business & the working class…..

Texans that be your God - She don't care for your new AbortionBan laws either. misogyny Maybe if Trump would just used his pen to draw a different storm track and Texas will be safe?!?! I feel zero sympathy for Texas. Maybe the hurricane can create a cleansing effect to the distasteful electorate there.

Thoughts and prayers. or do i wait until after some town gets destroyed or homes are flooded, and then don’t do anything about it ever but ask for federal help Well shit. Be safe everyone.
