Texas is facing a "very major disaster" as Hurricane Harvey approaches its coastline, the state's governor says.
Harvey, currently a category three storm in the Gulf of Mexico, will make landfall on Texas' central coast late on Friday or early on Saturday.
Could be America's worst environmental disaster and yet there are people surfing just hours before the hurricane hits... I suppose those same surfers would want others to risk their lives for them if they got into difficulties.
As much as we complain about the weather here, we have some of the world's tamest weather and are very lucky.
