Downtown Beta crosses the Texas coast near the southern tip of the Matagorda Peninsula – Telemundo Houston

HOUSTON, TEXAS – Tropical Storm Beta made landfall and crossed the Texas coast Monday at 10:00 pm with winds approaching 45 mph in an area near the southern tip of the Matagorda Peninsula.

According to an update from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) bulletin at 11 pm downtown, Storm Beta was located 5 miles from Port O’Connor and 25 miles from Matagorda.

The main concern regarding this storm has to do with the coastal flooding that has already been registered in several areas of the greater Houston area.

This, boosted by the fact that the storm is moving only at 3 mph, which means that the rains will remain over the region, at least, until Wednesday.

In fact, that is why the meteorological authorities maintain a tropical storm warning from Port Aransas (Texas) hasta Morgan City (Louisiana).

Once Beta touches Texas land, it will lose intensity in its winds, but the storms will continue to stay close to the coast.

Of course, a storm surge warning is maintained over this entire area, which includes Galveston Bay and its surroundings.
