Beryl intensifies as it reaches the US as a category 1 hurricane

The deputy governor of the state of Texas, Dan Patrick, has asked the population to do everything possible to protect themselves

Beryl will make landfall possibly on South Padre Island, on the border between Texas and Mexico, as a Category 1 hurricane.

The US National Hurricane Center reported on Saturday that Tropical Storm Beryl has intensified again after leaving Mexican territory and that it threatens to gain hurricane status again as it approaches the south of the North American state of Texas.

The meteorological agency predicts that 'Beryl' will make landfall possibly on South Padre Island, on the border between Texas and Mexico, as a category 1 hurricane. For this reason, the state's deputy governor, Dan Patrick, has asked the population to Do everything you can to protect yourself.

«We are preparing for any situation. The accompanying rains can be torrential,” Patrick declared in a statement broadcast by local television stations.

Meanwhile, the Texas coast is under a hurricane watch from the mouth of the Rio Grande toward San Luis Pass, as well as under a storm watch from the Rio Grande north toward High Island.
