Officials in Jackson County have advised the public that there will be a public shelter located at the County Services building, for residents who wish to evacuated from that area.

"This is a serious storm, with strong winds and what forecasters have predicted will potentially be a historic amount of rainfall that will significantly raise the risk of serious and life-threatening flooding", Cruz said.

Tropical Storm Harvey has strengthened and is now a hurricane. It is expected to become a hurricane on Friday before making landfall late Friday or early Saturday, the NHC reports. But until that happens, this Low is going to sit in spin for a few days, and bringing several rounds of showers and storms across the Florida peninsula. The company operates 10 platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.

Maj. Gen. Glenn Curtis of the Louisiana National Guard said the state has positioned six boats and 15 high-water vehicles in the New Orleans area and can dispatch more to other parts of the state if needed. As Harvey stalls over southeast Texas, expect more Flood Watches to be issued.

"Our utmost priority is the well-being of our students, faculty, staff and visitors", said incoming UTSA President Taylor Eighmy.

Harvey is likely to bring multiple hazards, including heavy rainfall dangerous storm-surge flooding and destructive winds.

Harvey would be the first major hurricane to make landfall in Texas since Hurricane Ike in September 2008, The Associated Press reported.

Harvey became a hurricane at 2 p.m. EDT Thursday with winds of 80 mph.

Also, the Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base was designated as an evacuation point for Navy personnel and aircraft at air stations in Corpus Christi and Kingsville.

Governor of the State, Greg Abbott ordered the Mexico Operation Center to raise its readiness level towards the forecasted catastrophe.
