(Reuters) – The Texas Gulf Coast was getting ready for the tropical storm Harvey to make landfall by Friday, bringing with it strong winds, heavy flooding and torrential rains. Hurricane, tropical storm and storm surge watches were in effect for counties on the eastern coast of Texas as the storm moved across the Gulf of Mexico, where it may strengthen into a hurricane. Winds up to 75 mph (120 km) and 15 inches of rain (40 cm) were forecast, according to the National Weather Service. Deliberate efforts should be underway to protect life and property,” the weather service said in an statement early on Thursday.
