Megathread: Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey is now a category 4 storm. It is expected to produce winds that could reach 125-155 mph and anywhere from 15-30 inches of rain and potentially as much as 60 inches of rain in some places according to some models. This will be a long storm and if you are in its path, it may be too late for you to evacuate. Make sure you follow emergency management advice.

In some areas, officers have been ordered to cease responding to emergency calls until the storm relents. Stay safe out there!
