Hurricane Hanna Hits Texas Just South of Corpus Christi



Hurricane Hanna is expected to make landfall in Texas this afternoon or early evening, just south of Corpus Christi. Of course, with hurricanes, forecasts can change so it’s a good idea to watch the storm on radar if you’re in the region. Hanna is a Category 1 hurricane with winds of about 80 mph. Here’s a look at live streams and webcams showing the storm as it makes landfall.

This first stream is from CBS 19, showing local news KIII in Corpus Christi. This will include live coverage of damage in the area and other news as the storm makes landfall just south of Corpus Christi.


As of 10 a.m. Central, Hanna was located 75 miles ENE of Port Mansfield, Texas and 85 miles SE of Corpus Christi, Texas, according to the NOAA. It has maximum sustained winds of 80 mph and is moving west or 270 degrees at 7 mph. Minimum central pressure is 978 MB or 28.88 inches.


NHC noted:


At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of the eye of Hurricane Hanna was located by reconnaissance aircraft and NOAA Doppler weather radars near latitude 27.1 North, longitude 96.3 West. Hanna is moving toward the west near 7 mph (11 km/h), and this motion should continue through this morning. A gradual turn toward the west-southwest is expected by late afternoon and tonight, and that motion should continue through Sunday. On the forecast track, the center of Hanna should make landfall along the Texas coast within the hurricane warning area by late afternoon or early this evening.


Data from the NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft and Doppler weather radars indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 80 mph (130 km/h) with higher gusts. Some further strengthening is possible before Hanna makes landfall later today. Rapid weakening is expected after Hanna moves inland.


Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles(150 km).


Reports from the NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that the minimum central pressure is 978 mb (28.88 inches).
