As you know, this is a hurricane that will come inland and then as prognosticated to just hover for a long period of time. It could be days, and during that long period of time there will be a tremendous amount of rain dropped on miles upon miles of Texas.
If you are in areas between Corpus Christi and Houston, maybe even some other areas, especially low-lying areas areas. You need to strongly consider evacuating. A major disaster declaration that I issued to the President moments ago. This of course will trigger the additional help and assistance from the Federal Government, the state of Texas is asking for.
We can obviously tell already at this stage. This is going to be a very major disaster.
