The category three storm, currently in the Gulf of Mexico, is expected to make landfall along the state’s central coast on Friday night.

The National Hurricane Center warned that torrential rain and storm surges could bring life-threatening flooding to Houston and surrounding area.

The storm will also strike at the heart of Texas’s oil refining industry.
