Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick warned residents that Tropical Storm Beryl — expected to make landfall on the state’s southeast coast Monday morning as a Category 1 hurricane — could be a “deadly storm” for those in its path.

The National Hurricane Center Before making landfall on Sunday, the storm strengthened on its path toward Texas, warning that it would become a Category 2 hurricane.

The storm is forecast to strengthen again as a hurricane as it moves toward the Gulf of Mexico, and by the time it makes landfall in the United States, it will become a Category 1 hurricane.

Governor Greg Abbott warned Texans to prepare for the impact: “As Texans and visitors to the South Coast celebrate Independence Day, I urge them to make emergency plans to stay safe.”

Beryl has so far killed at least eleven people in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Jamaica and Venezuela after charting a deadly path through the Caribbean as a category five hurricane earlier in the week.

On Wednesday, the storm knocked out power to 400,000 homes and destroyed buildings in Jamaica.

Beryl was upgraded to a hurricane before landfall

With maximum sustained winds of nearly 75 mph (120 km/h), Beryl has been upgraded to a hurricane, the National Hurricane Center said.

It added that the hurricane will strengthen before making landfall on the Texas coast on Monday.

It has caused significant damage throughout the Caribbean, particularly affecting the islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Mariehamn, Union, and Grenada.

Beryl was one of the most powerful storms to hit Jamaica, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without power.

The Houston airport may cancel flights as Beryl approaches

The Houston airport said there could be flight delays or cancellations as Beryl approaches Texas.

Even for flights departing or arriving at destinations outside the storm’s direct path, “airlines may need to adjust flight schedules and routes due to the overall impact of the hurricane on their networks,” it said.

It urged people not to seek shelter at airports during the storm.

“As the storm approaches, we want to remind everyone that our airports are not acting as storm shelters as people plan to stay indoors and stay safe from the storm. “We do not have the supplies and staff to accommodate people who seek shelter during the storm,” it said.

Texas residents experience power outages, flooding as Beryl moves closer to landfall

Rain and strong winds began battering coastal Texas after the powerful storm Berly left a path of destruction in Mexico and the Caribbean.

The storm was expected to make landfall in the middle of the Texas coast around Matagorta Bay, about 100 miles (161 km) south of Houston, but officials warned that the track could still change.

Texas officials warned the storm could cause power outages and flooding, but also worried that not enough coastal residents and beach vacationers in Beryl’s path heeded warnings to evacuate. “One of the things that raises our concern is that we’ve looked at all the roads that leave the coast and the maps are still green,” said Texas Lt. Gov. Don Patrick, who serves as the state’s acting governor. .
