Tropical Storm Beta gains strength this Saturday as it slowly advances over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico towards the Texas coast, where authorities issued a hurricane warning Friday night.

Beta is advancing toward Texas.

Storm Beta is expected to reach sustained winds of up to 74 miles per hour (119 km) on Sunday, when it will become a category one hurricane. Meteorologists forecast to make landfall next week in northern Galveston County.

In that location, authorities have already announced voluntary evacuation orders for all residents, as has the city of Seabrook, north of Galveston.

According to the latest report from the National Hurricane Center (NHC), from 4:00 pm EAST Time, Beta was 305 miles (495 km) from Corpus Christi, Texas, and 245 miles (395 km) south of Lake Charles, Louisiana, an area where thousands of people remain without electricity in the wake of Hurricane Laura in late August.

The hurricane alert ranges from Port Aransas to High Island, both in Texas. There is also a cyclone surge warning between Port Mansfield, Texas and High Island, and another by tropical storm from Port Aransas to the mouth of the Rio Bravo, and from east High Island to Morgan City, Louisiana.

Forecasts point to a cyclonic storm surge of up to 4 feet (1.2 meters) in parts of the Texan coast including Baffin Bay, Corpus Christi Bay and Galveston Bay, among others. The storm is expected to include strong winds and precipitation, dangerous swell and hangover currents.

In an unusually active Atlantic hurricane season, meteorologists ran out of letters of the traditional alphabet to name storms before Friday and had to resort to the Greek alphabet for the second time since the 1950s.

On the other hand, Teddy remained a powerful hurricane on saturday morning, with sustained maximum winds 130 miles per hour (215 km). The meteor vortex was 650 miles (1,045 km) southeast of Bermuda, less than a week after Hurricane Paulette made landfall on British soil. Authorities triggered a tropical storm alert on the island.

Teddy’s storm surges are expected to be felt in the Greater and Minor Antilles in the Bahamas, Bermuda, before reaching the U.S. East Dimension.

Parts of the Alabama coast and northwest Florida are still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Sally, which hit the area on Wednesday. The system caused at least two deaths and hundreds of thousands of people were still out of power on Friday night.
