Texas braces itself when Hurricane Hanna arrives

Hurricane Hanna made landfall on Padre Island in Texas.

The storm landed about 15 miles north of Port Mansfield, Texas, at a maximum wind speed of 90 mph, the US National Hurricane Center said in an afternoon update.

Local officials on Saturday asked residents to stay home and weather the storm, as well as take into account the corona virus pandemic.

Meteorologists say Hanna’s biggest concern is expected to be flooding.
