Hanna becomes season's first hurricane; gets stronger on approach to Texas


As of 10:30 this morning, Hurricane Hanna has gotten stronger with maximum gusts of 80 miles an hour. The storm is making a run at the southern coast of Texas. Dennis Feltgen with the National Hurricane Center tells KTRH when they are expecting landfall.

"The center of Hanna should make landfall along the Texas coast by later this afternoon or early this evening, somewhere between Port Mansfield and Mesquite Bay," Feltgen said.

Hanna became a hurricane this morning at about 7 o'clock. Tim Cady with the National Weather Service in League City told us as Hanna has gotten closer to Texas, the outer bands of that storm have been giving us just a taste of it has to offer.

"We're seeing some of the outer rain bands of Hanna move on shore, and we are expecting that to continue with activity picking up through the afternoon," Cady stated, adding that Hanna will be with us tomorrow as well.
