Texas Governor Greg Abbott will hold a press briefing on Friday regarding the impending Hurricane Harvey.

Hurricane Harvey, a Category 2 storm roaring out of the Gulf of Mexico, continues to barrel toward the Texas coastline. Authorities warned residents to take shelter from what could be life-threatening winds and floods.

Harvey is set to make landfall late Friday or early Saturday on the central Texas coast, where Corpus Christi and Houston are home to some of the biggest U.S. refineries.
