Index – Abroad – Hurricane Burley already on its way to Houston, USA

As we reported, a hurricane warning has been issued for the entire Texas coast in the United States, as the first hurricane of this year's Atlantic hurricane season is forecast to make landfall on the South Texas coast early Monday local time. Hurricane Beryl has so far killed at least 10 people in the Caribbean before becoming a tropical storm when it made landfall on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.

The storm is expected to bring damaging winds, flash flooding and up to 8 inches of rain to Texas. Some of the state's largest ports have been closed, and residents are warned of widespread power outages, reports said. BBC.

The storm is expected to make landfall between Galveston and Corpus Christi, with winds of up to 110 mph. While it won't be as strong as those seen in the Caribbean, officials say it could cause widespread power outages and disruptions across the state as far as Houston.

National Hurricane Center Director Michael Brennan warned people in Beryl's path to seek shelter through Monday. Refugio and Nueces counties were ordered to evacuate.

The Texas Gulf Coast, East Texas, and the Arcata (Arkansas-Texas) region are at very high risk for flash flooding. Don't ignore this very dangerous storm.

Acting Governor Dan Patrick said.

Beryl is expected to move across the Midwest, including Mississippi, this week.

Earlier, as the hurricane passed through the Windward Islands in the eastern Caribbean, it caused catastrophic damage to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, as well as Grenada. Winds reached 241 km/h. Initial reports from the two island nations indicate that hundreds of buildings, including homes, schools, hospitals and police stations, were severely damaged or completely destroyed. According to videos and photos posted on social media, the hurricane caused extensive damage, with footage showing people searching through homes and ruins with roofs blown off.
