Hurricane forecasters warn Beryl will strengthen before slamming into Texas

Tropical Storm Beryl marched toward the Texas coast Sunday morning as forecasters warned the storm will regain hurricane strength and slam ashore early Monday. However, Beryl’s impacts – such as strong winds, heavy rain, and rough seas – will begin in South Texas well before landfall, the National Hurricane Center warned. “Winds are first expected to reach tropical storm strength by late today (Sunday), making outdoor preparations difficult or dangerous,” the Center said. The storm made landfall on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula Friday morning, after it plowed through the Caribbean and Jamaica earlier this week, killing at least 11 people. At 8:00 a.m. EDT, the center of Beryl was located about 220 miles southeast of Corpus Christi in the Gulf of Mexico, traveling northwest at 12 mph. It was expected to continue moving northwest throughout the day Sunday, then north-northwest by Sunday night. Video, photos, more, >>CLICK TO READ<< 11:37
