Weather experts have been predicting a Category 4 hurricane to strike Mexico this weekend, but experts have yet to see it.
This video shows a Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall in Texas on Friday, destroying homes and killing at least four people, in Texas.
The video also shows a hurricane named Harvey hitting the United States in 2018.
“This is a very dangerous storm,” said Dr. Steve Davis, the director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami.
“It has the potential to become a Category 3 or higher hurricane with sustained winds of 120 miles per hour or more.”
The National Weather Service in Miami says that if it does become a major hurricane, the storm could be as strong as Category 4.
“There’s a good chance it could become one of the strongest hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean,” said NWS meteorologist Paul Kukla.
“We don’t know yet.
We’re looking at the potential for this storm to make landfall in the Gulf of Mexico.
That’s where we think this hurricane could be.”
The storm could bring heavy rainfall and wind gusts up to 160 miles per day.
Davis said if the storm does make landfall, it could be devastating.
“I’d be surprised if it wasn’t a catastrophic storm,” he said.
Davis also warned that even if a storm does hit the U.S., the storm may not be as severe.
“The most important thing to remember is the size of the storm is going to be the difference,” Davis said.
“A Category 4 storm has a storm surge of 25 to 50 feet.
A Category 3 is going down in the middle of a city and a Category 2 is down in a rural area.
It’s a little bit of a big difference.”
But if a hurricane does strike the U, it may be much stronger than expected.
“Most of the time, a hurricane that is going on the edge of a tropical storm does not become a hurricane,” Davis told Mashable.
“But a Category 1 hurricane, which has a sustained winds at 130 miles per minute or more, could become a tropical depression.”
If the storm makes landfall, a storm is expected to move west-northwest and into the Florida Panhandle, making landfall in Sarasota and Miami-Dade counties, according to the National Weather Services.
“Hurricanes typically are very strong in the Florida Keys and the southeastern Panhandle,” Davis explained.
“That is where a lot of these storms originate.
And the storm system will become a very strong hurricane in the eastern Atlantic, and that’s where the hurricanes tend to originate,” he added.
