Hello Dolly: Mexicans, Texans Prepare for the Hurricane

Al Dia, Posted: Jul 22, 2008

McALLEN, TexasResidents on both sides of the Mexico-Texas border prepared for a tropical storm; collecting firewood, generators and flashlights, as reported Al Dia on Tuesday. The storm turned into a full-fledged hurricane. Hurricane Dolly was cited traveling at a sustained pace of 75 mph with central activity occurring in Brownsville, Texas. Meteorologists have issued warnings to Texans living on the coast, from Brownsville to Corpus Christi and to Mexicans "from Rio San Fernando northward." Tamaulipas's Gov. Eugenio Hernandez said city officials were set on evacuating 23,000 people to government shelters in San Fernando, Soto La Marina and Matamoros. Texan authorities expressed concern for the state of Rio Grande's levees, recommending residents move away from them in case Dolly behaves like 1967's "Beulah," a hurricane that left the levees in shambles. The threat of flooding on both sides of the border will increase if forecasters are right in their prediction that Dolly could yield 15 to 20 inches of rain.
