United States of America: Texas: Hurricane Harvey

New Zealanders in Texas should be aware that Hurricane Harvey is expected to make landfall on 25 August as a Category 3 hurricane. The US National Hurricane Center has issued hurricane warnings from Port Mansfield to Sargent in Texas. Emergency services and other authorities have been placed on alert. Please see the National Hurricane Center website for more information on Hurricane Harvey.

New Zealanders in Texas in the path of the hurricane are advised to follow the advice of local authorities at all times (including any evacuation orders) and seek suitable shelter. Visitors and tourists staying in travel accommodation should follow the guidance of their accommodation management and/or tour operators. It is generally considered sensible practice not to venture outdoors and remain well away from the sea. It is also important to keep family and friends in New Zealand updated on your welfare.
