Watch: New Orleans Officials Update Harvey Preps

 

The state of Louisiana is mobilizing emergency services in anticipation of Tropical Storm Harvey, which is currently churning through the Gulf of Mexico.

Harvey is gaining strength as it heads toward the coast of Texas and could become a Category Three hurricane before making landfall sometime tomorrow night or early Saturday morning.

In a press conference this morning, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu called Harvey an "all hands on deck" situation. He said all city and state emergency responders are standing by and he advised all residents to be prepared and "get a plan" ready.
