What was already the strongest hurricane to make landfall in the USA since Hurricane Katerina 12 years ago has strengthened dramatically in the last few hours.

Hurricane Harvey which is due to strike Texas in the next few hours has been upgraded from a Category 2 to a Category 4 since 6pm Irish time and is still strengthening. Along with destructive and life-threatening winds and very heavy rains, the main feature of this storm is the manner in which it is expected to linger for days in coastal regions of Texas and Louisiana, dumping 1 to 1.2 metres of rain.

Local authorities have told those who ignored the advice to leave the affected zones that it's too late to do anything now and that they should write their name and social security number on their forearms. That sounds kind of grim.

I'm heading there tonight.

The storm has intensified to a Category 4 in the last 45 mins.

Significant flooding expected in Galveston. Causing havoc with shipping in the area.

There's no "e" in Katrina.

Doesn't sound good at all, hopefully there isnt many casualties, unfortunately for those that stayed behind it's looking like it might be too late.
