The next 24 hours are going to be nerve-racking, for residents along the entire Texas coast. Friday at press time, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who is acting governor while Gov. Gregg Abbott is out of the country, and said Beryl was a “very slow-moving storm." Patrick continued, “Once it moves into the water, the storm will tell us more of where it is heading.”

Additional watches and warnings along the U.S. coast will continue as Beryl has the potential to reintensify as the center moves offshore. The National Hurricane Center sent an air of caution Friday that, “There is an increasing risk of damaging hurricane-force winds and life-threatening storm surge in portions of northeastern Mexico and the lower and middle Texas Coast late Sunday and Monday."
