Harold has been downgraded from a tropical storm to a tropical depression after it made landfall on Padre Island, Texas, Tuesday morning and was dropping heavy rain on parts of the state, according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm formed in the Gulf of Mexico and was bringing strong winds and rain to southern Texas and northern Mexico. 

On Tuesday evening, Tropical Depression Harold was approaching Laredo, Texas, which is on the state’s border with Mexico. It had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph and was heading west-northwest at 21 mph.

South Texas was expected to see 2 to 4 inches of rain through early Wednesday with “scattered instances” of flash flooding possible, according to the National Hurricane Center. The northern Mexico states of Coahuila and Nuevo Leon could see up to 10 inches of rain. 

Tropical storm watches and warnings have been canceled for both regions. Harold is expected to dissipate by Wednesday, the hurricane center said. 

As Harold made landfall, Corpus Christi, located near Padre Island, saw powerful winds of up to 50 mph and drenching rain that flooded roads near the Texas State Aquarium.

More than 8,700 homes and businesses were without power Tuesday evening in the Corpus Christi area, according to utility provider AEP Texas.
