TEXAS (TWC) – Hurricane Harvey continues to intensify and is now a Category 3 hurricane off the coast of Texas.

The hurricane will likely be the nation’s first Category 3 landfall in almost 12 years tonight or Saturday morning, poised to clobber the Texas Gulf Coast with catastrophic rainfall flooding, dangerous storm-surge flooding and destructive winds this weekend that could leave parts of the area uninhabitable for an extended period of time.

After a slight pause Thursday night, Harvey has reintensified today with maximum sustained winds of 120 mph. Harvey is located about 75 miles east-southeast of Corpus Christi, Texas, moving northwest at around 10 mph.
