Hurricane Watches up for Southern Texas Coast
08:12 AM EDT - 21 August 1999
Bret is on its way to becoming a major hurricane that may affect Texas. Hurricane Watches have been set up in Brownsville, up to Baffin Bay, TX down to Tuxpan, in Mexico.
NHC intensity forecasts have the storm becoming a major hurricane (category 3) with 115 Mph Winds. It could become stronger than that.
Needless to say, if you had recreation plans on the coast of South Texas, it would be a good call to cancel them now. We'll be watching. Oh, and if you are reading this from that area and haven't started making preperations. Stop reading now and get them done and plan to move if you have to when and if a warning is placed for your area.
