CORPUS CHRISTI — Hurricane Harvey, slowing to a Category 1 storm, moved farther inland Saturday, but forecasters warned that it continues to deliver life-threatening storm surges up to 12 feet in some areas and the danger of “catastrophic” flooding from torrential rains across the middle and upper Texas coast for several days.
At 6.a.m.CDT, the National Hurricane Center clocked Harvey’s sustained wins at 85 mph, dropping it from a Category 2 storm to a Category 1 and said it would likely slow to a Tropical Storm later in the day.
Although no longer a powerful Category 4 storm, Harvey is far from a spent force. The National Weather Service says Harvey is expected to stall and spin for the next three to five days, delivering heavy rainfall for the next three days. It could also slip back into the Gulf and regenerate as a powerful storm and head up the coast toward Louisiana.
A flash flood watch remains in effect across southern Texas until Tuesday evening, as Harvey is expected to stall and spin for the next three to five days.
