Hurricane Emily

By  | 

After ordering RV owners out of a beach front park yesterday, South Texas authorities this morning could issue broader evacuation orders as the region prepares for Hurricane Emily.

A hurricane warning was issued this morning for the lower Texas coast, although forecasters expect Emily's eye to make landfall in northern Mexico.

Residents spent yesterday boarding up windows and putting down sandbags. Although some residents are concerned about the potential
for strong winds from the storm, they also believe the hurricane could have a silver lining in the form of rain -- something that's been missing from the South Texas landscape in recent months.

Emily left behind flooding and tore the roofs off homes and luxury hotels in Cancun when it made an initial landfall yesterday on Mexico's Yucatan peninsula.
