When Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast in 2017, it had been 48 years since a major hurricane had devastated the Coastal Bend region of Texas. Harvey was not expected to be a major hurricane. Early predictions indicated a Category 1 or 2 hurricane. But its slow pace allowed it to gather strength, and on August 25, 2017, when it hit the Texas coast, it had indeed become a monster.
Even with modern technology’s ability to forecast the path and severity of a hurricane, they remain unpredictable. Hurricane Harvey proved that. And that’s why acting before a hurricane is critical to keep you and your family safe.
