Cold weather linked to mortality risks in Texas, research shows

Cold weather increases the risk of mortality in Texas residents, according to researchers. In the state's 12 major metro areas from 1990 to 2011, researchers found that cold temperatures significantly increased the risk of mortality by up to 5 percent with a 1 degree Celsius decrease in temperature in the winter. Ref. Source 7x.

Currently Harvey is at 85 MPH sustained winds and still strengthening. They say it may even be a cat 4 hurricane when it makes landfall. Will have to wait and see as it progresses tomorrow.

KN,

A Category 4 would add more wind and a bit more storm surge, but the catastrophic thing are those rain totals they are predicting. If they get 35" of rain relatively quickly it'll be bad. That is almost three feet of rain. The ground will become saturated quickly, the sewer system will overflow, rivers and streams will jump their banks, dams and levees could fail, and streets will become rivers. It'll be very dangerous.

Yes I understand the main threat is the rains. But you add in a stronger wind and you can get stronger spin off tornadoes and greater wind damage that can cause the rain to get inside building to cause even more damage. Plus a higher storm surge that will flood the coastal areas more causing more damage there too. All in all a Cat 4 Hurricane can cause much more damage than a cat 3 but even a strong cat 3 or a weak cat 4 both are going to be dangerous.

That is good that they are taking this seriously. This will be the strongest storm to hit Texas in over 12 years. I think it is will be the strongest storm to hit the lower 48 in the past two decades or more. This is not a storm to be taken lightly.
