LATER THIS WEEK

Wednesday, Aug. 30 – Tropical Storm Harvey projected to move back inland from the Gulf of Mexico, making landfall around the Texas/ Louisiana border and moving inland into Louisiana. Harvey previously made landfall in Texas – as a hurricane – late Friday night. Thousands of people have been rescued from 'catastrophic and life-threatening' flooding in the area, with at least three people reportedly killed and the death toll expected to rise. Forecasts for its return to land have included up to 15 inches of rainfall, a storm surge of up to three feet, swells likely to cause 'life-threatening' surf and rip current conditions, and possibly some tornadoes. Over the next few days, storm expected to move further inland, hitting states around Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky, weakening to tropical depression levels as it goes.
