Will Hurricane Beryl Hit Texas? Here Are The Latest Updates

Hurricane Beryl will most likely make a landfall in the southern Texas Gulf Coast, near Corpus Christi, according to a new model. Here’s what you need to know ahead of the storm.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Beryl made landfall on Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula this morning, with maximum winds of 110 mph. Significant strengthening is anticipated on Sunday as the storm becomes better organized and curves north toward Texas.

“Rapid weakening is expected as Beryl moves farther inland and crosses the Yucatan Peninsula today, but slow re-intensification is expected once Beryl moves back over the Gulf of Mexico,” the NHC said.

NHC predicts the storm could strengthen back to a Category 1 or 2 hurricane. 

According to the Houston Chronicle, weather models are converging on a potential landfall location within 100 miles of Corpus Christi. Beryl is expected to slow down as it curves north along the Texas coastline. Landfall is now projected between 3 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday. If the path shifts eastward, landfall could occur even later.

NHC is forecasting damaging winds along the coast, storm surges and damaging waves. Wind gusts could exceed 100 mph in Beryl’s eye, with tropical storm-force winds extending up to 60 miles from the center and coastal water levels could rise up to six feet. NHC also said the region could see four to six inches of rain, with up to 10 inches in some areas.

Gov. Greg Abbott directed to increase the readiness level of the State Emergency Operations Center.

“As Texans and visitors around the south coastal areas begin to celebrate our nation’s Independence Day, I urge them to make an emergency plan, review hurricane evacuation routes, and continue to monitor weather conditions to ensure the safety of themselves and their loved ones,” Abbott wrote.

Residents along the Texas Gulf Coast should remain vigilant and monitor updates as Beryl approaches. Preparedness and timely responses to forecasts will be crucial in mitigating the storm’s impacts.
