Although the federal government's hurricane office often rates the power or category of a hurricane as a major hurricane, if you look at the top wind-speeds recorded in the area, the actual wind speed is generally much smaller. Anyway, Category 2 (minor) Hurricane Harvey is coming ashore in Texas. They may count this as a major hurricane but I doubt it deserves such a rating.
On the up side, here is the drought index the federal government keeps track of. Some abnormal dryness in south Texas is about to be ended. That's a good thing.
Hope everyone keeps safe in the storm.
