Hurricane Harvey came ashore near Rockport, Texas late Friday evening. With its arrival, people were braced for “life-threatening storm surge, rainfall and wind hazards to portions of the Texas coast.” It was the first Category 4 hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Hurricane Charley in 2004. The storm was downgraded to a Category 1 just before daybreak on Saturday.

The massive storm made landfall at 10 p.m. local time as a Category 4 storm, with maximum sustained winds of about 130 mph.

Harvey made landfall over the northern end of San Jose Island between Port Aransas and Port O’Connor. Harvey made a second landfall on the northeastern shore of Copano Bay.
