At 2 p.m. Central time (19:00 UTC) on August 25, the NHC reported that Hurricane Harvey had maximum sustained winds of 120 miles (195 kilometers) per hour and a minimum central pressure of 943 millibars (27.85 inches). The category 3 storm was about 75 miles (125 kilometers) east-southeast of Corpus Christi, Texas; tropical storm force winds and outer rain bands were beginning to hit the Texas coast. Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 35 miles (55 kilometers) from the center.Locations:Gulf of Mexico-North AmericaDate:25 Aug, 2017Credit:© NASA Earth ObservatoryMaximum size:5664px X 6000pxRestrictions:IMAGE IS IN PUBLIC DOMAIN.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured these natural-color image of the rapidly intensifying storm.The National Hurricane Center expects Harvey to be a category 3 storm on the Saffir-Simpson scale—with winds higher than 111 miles (179 kilometers) per hour—when it makes landfall. It will likely produce a storm surge of 6 to 12 feet (2 to 4 meters) and drop between 15 and 25 inches (38 and 63 centimeters) of rain in some areas—enough to produce life-threatening flash floods.
