Hurricane Harvey – Photos from NASA

NASA being the being the most advanced space research agency on earth released a brief footage on Thursday night shows Hurricane Harvey’s powerful churn towards central Texas, where the gigantic storm is expected to collide coastal communities with high winds and even up to 25 inches of rain.

Within a span after the tropical cyclone which regenerated over the Gulf of Mexico, the footage was captured specifically around 6 p.m. by the cameras aboard the International Space station.

Harvey is expected to smash as a category 3 hurricane with wind speeds probably around 111 miles per hour, which might lead to a landfall late Friday near Corpus Christi.

A separate footage was also released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration which details the striking views of the hurricane, from one of its WP-3D Orion “hurricane hunter” aircraft as it flies through the heart of the storm.                          

A time-lapse video, recorded moments prior, shows the plane being jostled and pelted with rain before emerging in the storm’s relatively calm epicenter.

It has emerged and predicted to be a full-fledged hurricane and the most powerful one to hit the United States after Hurricane Wilma smashed south Florida 12 years ago. The National Hurricane Center informed that it’s “astounding” due to sudden toughness of hurricane Harvey.

The consequence of Harvey may lead to deadly flooding as the Capital Whether gang reported that it will bring minimum up to 25 inches of rain and certain isolated areas might face up to 35 inches, which is really massive and may lead to huge destruction. The storm will be there for 4-5 days, declared by the meteorologists, which is a big concern.

Corpus Christi is located near Nueces County, which is the home to about 360,000 residents, which even has many low-lying areas and a barrier island.

William “Brock” Long appointment was confirmed in June, to lead the Federal Emergency Management Agency by the Trump Administration, as this sudden hurricane is poised to be its first major test of disaster response.
