Hurricane Harvey made landfall late Friday night 30 miles (48 kilometers) northeast of Corpus Christ, Texas. Millions evacuated from all seven Texas counties along the Gulf coast, as the National Hurricane Center predicted “catastrophic and life-threatening flooding” and winds up to 125 mph (201 kph).
As of Friday night, Harvey became a Category 4 storm, with sustained winds increasing to 130 mph (209 kph). That makes Harvey the worst storm to hit the U.S. since Hurricane Wilma bore down on Florida in October 2005.
