Hurricane Harvey, with wind speeds of up to 110 mph (175 km/h), is en route to hit the coast of Texas as a category 3 hurricane tonight.

Mandatory evacuation orders have been issued along the state’s coast, while countries such as Corpus Christi and Jackson County are asking residents to voluntarily evacuate.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who has declared a state of disaster in 30 counties, said: “I strongly urge all Texans to heed warnings from your local officials.

“I also urge that you immediately follow evacuation orders for all impacted counties, particularly in the Corpus Christi and Houston areas where the storm surges and flooding from Hurricane Harvey are most likely.

“Please take all necessary precautions to save your life and minimise risk.”

He added: “Don’t take any chances and evacuate when you are ordered. Also be sure to avoid rising waters and take care of each other. May God bless you and keep you safe.”

Pictures from around Corpus Christi are already showing signs of the incoming bad weather, with dark skies looming on the horizon.

But the defiant Texans caught in lower-risk areas have been busy boarding up their houses and filling up sandbags for the imminent floods.
