Residents of Port Lavaca were compelled to leave their homes on Friday, after local authorities ordered an evacuation, due to the incoming Hurricane Harvey. Some of the residents decided to stay and shelter in a boarded restaurant. Explaining the decision to do so, Port Lavaca resident Sissy Riggy said, «We didn't want to get caught up in the flooding and the traffic when you leave». Harvey is... Еще a Category 2 hurricane and reportedly the most powerful weather system to reach the US in close to 12 years. Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared a state of emergency ahead of the hurricane's arrival.
