Hurricane Beryl Makes Landfall in Texas

Hurricane Beryl made landfall in Texas early on Monday as a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour. “People in urban and rural areas along the path of Beryl’s track shouldn’t let their guard down this week,” says AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Alex DaSilva. “Beryl will bring a risk of tornadoes as far away as Ohio, and downpours from the hurricane could also cause flash flooding as far north as Detroit, more than 1,100 miles from where Beryl made landfall in Texas.”

The powerful winds and rough surf from Beryl pushed several feet of storm surge into the coastal areas early Monday, flooding roads and blocking access to several shoreline areas. “The most intense rainfall will occur near the storm’s landfall location along the east-central Texas coast,” says AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys.

The wind knocked out power to over two million homes and businesses on Monday.
