Tropical Storm Harvey has made landfall near the town of Dangriga, Belize at around 2:40 pm CDT. The good news is, Harvey did not make hurricane status as feared in my previous post. However, heavy rains from Harvey will cause flooding problems for people living in Belize and southern Mexico over the next 2-3 days. Rapid wrapping and intensification of the system led many to believe that Harvey might make landfall as a minimal Category 1 hurricane.
