11 AM Sunday Beryl Update:Prepare to hunker down tonight and Monday and be without power for 1 to 2 days and even longer near where Beryl makes landfall along the coast. Beryl is gaining strength again, and Hurricane Warnings are up for most of our coastal counties with Tropical Storm Warnings for the rest of Southeast Texas. Those are your late Sunday morning headlines. Beryl now looks to most likely make landfall EAST of Matagorda Bay as a category 1 or 2 hurricane, which would bring more significant wind and rain impacts into the city of Houston and all communities along the HWY 288 corridor south of downtown Houston and the I-45 corridor north of downtown Houston. West of those highways winds could gust in the 60-80 mph range for about six hours. For Houston, those winds could start as early as the 4AM hour, peak around the 9AM hour, and improve by the noon hour.Monday will not be a business as usual day. Travel will be difficult if not impossible for much of the morning due to the wind that could knock debris onto roads and heavy rain that could flood streets.Please finish making your preparations today and be prepared to stay put for most of Monday wherever you go to sleep tonight.We are ramping up our coverage throughout the day and will be with you throughout the night. Keep your phones charged up, and if the power goes out, remember you can stream us anytime at abc13.com/live or on the ABC13 Houston News app (abc13.com/apps).We're here for you, and we'll get through this together! ...
