Hurricane Beryl is now making landfall along the middle Texas Coast



Hurricane Beryl is now making landfall along the middle Texas Coast with maximum sustained winds of 130 km/h.


The storm is bringing life-threatening storm surges and heavy rain across portions of Texas. Sustained tropical storm-force winds and hurricane-force wind gusts have already been reported along the coast, these winds will continue to spread inland.


A weather station located at Matagorda City recently reported a sustained wind of 109 km/h and a gust of 139 km/h.


After Beryal makes landfall, significant weakening is expected.


Heavy rainfall of 150 to 250 mm with localized amounts of 350 mm is expected across portions of the middle and upper Texas Gulf Coast and eastern Texas through Monday night. Widespread major flooding will occur.


Tornadoes are possible along the middle and upper Texas Coast, and on Monday across parts of east Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas.


Swells generated by Beryl are expected to affect eastern Mexico and much of the Gulf Coast of the U.S. over the next two days. Life-threatening surf and rip current conditions are likely.


Storm surge of 4 to 7 feet is expected from Port O'Connor to San Luis Pass and Matagorda Bay.
