Hurricane Harvey Strengthens to Category 3 near Texas
Hurricane Harvey who hurried on the American coast has risen in strength. It is now a hurricane in category 3. Twelve years ago, the US received a storm of that category for the last time.
The authorities are expecting a devastating inconvenience, as the hurricane is expected to remain quiet over Texas. In some places, rainfall will fall as much in one or several days as in the England for a whole year.
It is feared that the combination of that huge amount of water with persistent hurricane winds will cause ‘catastrophic floods.’
Ten Centuries Fled
Tens of thousands of Texans living in the predicted path of the storm fled. Millions prepare in other ways. Framed windows are shut down, and many stores do not get any food because many have hammed food and drinks for days.
President Trump closely monitored the situation and left the Texans tonight a heart under the belt.
Out of space
The hurricane has also been filmed from the ISS space station. The NASA released these images:

The US was last hit by a hurricane in this category in 2005. That was not the devastating hurricane Katrina in that year, which caused major parts of New Orleans to undergo almost two thousand deadly victims. It was at its height of category five.
