UPDATE: Hurricane Harvey

August 28, 2017

Hurricane Harvey, now a Tropical Storm, is stalling over the Houston area. Harvey will continue tracking northeast through this week, bringing additional rain over parts of Texas and Louisiana.

  • Shipping points in McAllen and Laredo are unaffected and operating under normal conditions
  • Mexican shipments are successfully crossing into Texas
  • Little to no impact was seen in citrus groves and early cabbage plantings located in the Rio Grande Valley due to limited rainfall  
  • All major interstates, including 35, 77, and 281 in South Texas are open and operational

Markon’s thoughts and prayers are with the flood victims throughout the state, including the millions affected in Houston.
