Officials have said that the evacuation window is rapidly closing for the Texas coast as Hurricane Harvey barrels toward the state, which is expecting catastrophic flooding, power outages, winds up to 130mph and 35+ inches of rain.

The National Weather Service on Friday morning urged that preparations should be ‘rushed to completion’ adding that ‘conditions are expected to deteriorate throughout the day’.

‘Now is the time to urgently hide from the wind,’ the NWS said in a flash bulletin on Friday. ‘Failure to adequately shelter may result in serious injury, loss of life, or immense human suffering.’

Throughout the Texas coast, millions of people were bracing for a prolonged battering from the hurricane, which could be the fiercest such storm to hit the US in nearly a dozen years.

Forecasters labeled Harvey a ‘life-threatening storm’ that posed a ‘grave risk,’ saying it could swamp several counties more than 100 miles inland.
