FEMA, through its Regional Response Coordination Center (RRCC) in Denton, Texas, is monitoring Tropical Storm Harvey as it moves toward Texas and Louisiana. The RRCC is activated to a Level II meaning that most emergency support functions have been activated.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Tropical Storm Harvey brings the potential for prolonged heavy rains, flooding and storm surge along the Gulf Coast. The storm will produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 15 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 20 inches over the middle and upper Texas coast and southwest Louisiana through next Tuesday, with heavy rainfall beginning as early as Friday morning.
The storm is also expected to produce total rain accumulations of three to nine inches in portions of south, central, and northeast Texas and the rest of the lower Mississippi Valley. Additional strengthening is forecast, and Tropical Storm Harvey is expected to become a hurricane on Friday. History shows that storm tracks can change quickly and unexpectedly.

As of 8 a.m. ET, the National Hurricane Center issued:

A Hurricane Warning for Port Mansfield to Matagorda, Texas.
A Hurricane Watch north of Port Mansfield to the mouth of the Rio Grande River in Texas.
A Tropical Storm Warning north of Matagorda to High Island, Texas and south of Port Mansfield to the mouth of the Rio Grande in Texas.
