Hurricane Harvey Strikes a Powerful Blow to Texas, and Lingers

The storm took an unusual path toward meteorological infamy. The system first became Tropical Storm Harvey on Aug. 17, when it was about 250 miles east of Barbados. Two days later, it disintegrated into a tropical wave. But on Wednesday, the system gained new and startling power, and forecasters issued the first hurricane watches for the Texas coast.By Friday night, fed by stable air and the Gulf of Mexico’s warm waters, it had grown into a Category 4 storm with sustained wind speeds of 130 m.p.h. In years past, major hurricanes caused immediate spikes in oil and gasoline prices, but as hard as Hurricane Harvey has hit the region’s refineries, the impact at the pump has so far been muted.Continue reading the main storyHowever, it may take days before the full impact of the storm is known. Roughly a million barrels a day of refining capacity has been shut down on the Gulf Coast, and nearly a quarter of gulf offshore production has been shut. […]

Roughly a million barrels a day of refining capacity has been shut down on the Gulf Coast, and nearly a quarter of gulf offshore production has been shut. The Corpus Christi shipping terminals responsible for importing and exporting oil and refined products are also closed. And if the ship channel between Port Aransas and Aransas Pass is badly damaged, it could take weeks for production to leave South Texas refineries, even if the plants are not harmed.Gasoline shortages are already appearing around Houston, where drivers have been waiting in long lines to fill up. Dozens of gasoline stations have run out of fuel in the metropolitan area, and prices at the pump have risen about 3 cents a gallon around the city this week.Few if any places in the world have as much energy infrastructure in harm’s way as the Gulf of Mexico coast.

Deadly Hurricanes Are Nothing New to Texas

The damage was estimated to cost $408 million, or $3.3 billion in current dollars.“All of this serves as a reminder that though man may reach for the moon there are still natural forces on this earth that he neither understands nor is able to prevent or control,” The Times wrote on Sept. 13, 1961.1970: Hurricane CeliaConfirmed deaths: 11, according to the National Weather Service.PhotoCredit Associated PressThe storm came ashore north of Corpus Christi and traveled into Texas.

Hurricane Harvey Makes Landfall Near Corpus Christi, Tex.

Texas Medical Center, one of the largest medical complexes in the world, is in Houston, and officials there awaited the worst with a full complement of patients on site. “We are hunkered down,” said William McKeon, the center’s president and chief executive, speaking by phone from his office as the hurricane made landfall about 200 miles southwest of the city.In nearby coastal Galveston, about 120 patients remained at the University of Texas Medical Branch’s Jennie Sealy Hospital on Friday night, said Chris Smith-Gonzalez, a media relations officer. The hospital opened last year and was “built to withstand a significant hurricane,” he said, after Hurricane Ike caused severe damage to the former medical campus in 2008.Refineries in the Houston and Beaumont-Port Arthur areas, both nerve centers for the nation’s energy industry, shut down operations in preparation for the storm, sending jitters through global energy markets.To be called a major storm, a hurricane must be Category 3 or higher on the Saffir-Simpson scale, which means winds of 111 to 129 m.p.h. Those winds can bring devastating damage, stripping off roof decking and bringing down many trees. Ike was a Category 2, though it pushed a monster storm surge. Sandy, despite the devastation it caused, had become what is known as a post-tropical storm before it made landfall.Forecasters emphasized that it was not just the wind that made Harvey dangerous. Storm surge, the water that a hurricane pushes ahead of it, can be tremendously destructive. Katrina, one of the deadliest and costliest hurricanes in United States history, inflicted much of its harm in 2005 in New Orleans through the surge, which overwhelmed the area’s faulty levees.VideoHow Are Hurricane Categories Defined?Wind speed, types of damage and power loss all factor into how a hurricane category is ranked.By DREW JORDAN and CHRIS CIRILLO on Publish Date August 25, 2017.Photo by Tamir Kalifa for The New York Times.Watch in Times Video »embed The sense of anxiety and confusion that preceded landfall was exacerbated Friday by mixed messages from state and local officials. The conflicting views from the Republican governor and the Democratic mayor of Houston reflected the tension that has come to define much of Texas politics.Continue reading the main storyAt an afternoon news conference, Gov. Greg Abbott strongly urged Houstonians to consider evacuating […]

With Trump on Vacation, a Sprucing Up for the West Wing

Presidents routinely leave Washington during August for a couple of weeks of downtime with their families. George W.
