Beryl tropical storm expected to slam into Texas coast

Texas officials are urging coastal residents to brace for a looming hit by Beryl as the tropical storm is expected to regain hurricane strength in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico after it trashed Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula on Friday and battered the resort town of Tulum.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center predicted that Beryl would regain hurricane strength Sunday before making landfall in the middle of the Gulf Coast of Texas the following day, bringing "dangerous storm surge, flash flooding and strong winds to Texas overnight." The latest forecasts indicate that landfall will happen early on Monday morning, before Beryl turns northeastward and moves farther inland over eastern Texas and Arkansas late Monday into Tuesday, according to the hurricane center. 

Earlier Sunday, Jack Beven, a senior hurricane specialist at the National Hurricane Center, told the Associated Press that Beryl was expected to make landfall "somewhere on the Texas coast" at some point on Monday, based on the latest forecasts.
