Watch Hurricane Harvey Via Your Computer
In this day and age, you can watch natural disasters live from multiple devices.
The American Statesman is reporting on all the webcams that are set up in Corpus Christi and other places making it possible for us hopefully dry Texans to watch Harvey make landfall.
The City of Corpus Christi page has webcams from the bayfront marina looking toward downtown Corpus, as well as from Whitecap Beach looking out at the Gulf of Mexico from near the end of Padre Island and the Southern end of Mustang Island. These seem to be popular, since I've had a tough time getting them to come up.
There's also the Dunes Condos in Port Aransas. They have a live webcam looking out at the Gulf of Mexico, which is good since that's where Harvey is coming from .
First Community Bank in Corpus has a webcam on its roof that offers time-lapse imagery.
There's also the Dolphin Dock in Port Aransas that has a webcam looking toward the ship channel. It buffers a lot but you can see some stuff. It looks like this will get flooded early.
