In Sebastian, people are already gathering supplies just in case of a tropical storm or hurricane.

The NHC said the storm will be near the main Hawaiian Islands Saturday, moving over parts of the state Sunday and Monday, bringing high winds, heavy surf, and rainfall of up to 25 centimetres.

City leaders held a daily COVID-19 news conference Monday afternoon, however there were a few changes during the presentation as they focused more on their responses to Hurricane Hanna.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour with higher gusts. It's the first hurricane of the season in the Atlantic and had sustained winds of 145km/h, making it a high-end Category 1 hurricane.

Hanna came almost three years after Hurricane Harvey made landfall northeast of Corpus Christi.

The storm dumped more than 12 inches of rain along the US-Mexico border as it tore through the area with winds of up to 50 miles per hour. We will continue to monitor any rain chances and let you know the latest.

The Caller Times also reached out to a CBP spokesman in the Rio Grande Valley, who said the terrain featured in the clip didn't seem to match that of the Texas Coast.

In addition, Corpus Christi, Port Mansfield, McAllen, and other coastal Texas towns all experienced storm surge flooding from hurricane Hanna that affected residential and commercial buildings.

In a tweet, President Donald Trump said his administration was monitoring Hanna, along with Hurricane Douglas, which was heading toward Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean.

Tropical storm warnings have been issued for numerous islands in the storm's path, including the US and British Virgin Islands, Antigua and Barbuda, Monserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Martin, Saba and St. Eustatius, and St. Maartin.

"The combination of a risky storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline, " the Miami-based Hurricane Center said.

'Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development and a tropical depression or tropical storm is likely to form within the next two or three days as the system nears the Lesser Antilles'.

The watch will remain in effect until 10 p.m. this evening.
