There is never anything funny about a hurricane, but

The National Weather Service is showing the radar on Accuweather but the computerized voice is giving the DFW forecast. They're showing a category 3 hurricane but saying 20% chance of rain.

The latest update says the sustained winds are now 120mph.

Yeah, they've added Travis county to the flash flood watch too. I hope I didn't run from the fire and into the frying pan. Stay safe Worth.

Category 4! I never read or heard anything about it possibly developing into a category 4 hurricane until it happened.

Thank you

No worries for me.
I have a ton of home cured meats and home canned food.
I have bleach to purify water a river plenty of wood and 5 gallons of kerosene and mineral oil to get wet wood started.
Not that I would need any of it where I live but you never know.
Couldn't care less about light.
