Dolly Update 8:45 AM

Hurricane Dolly is slowly moving towards Brownsville this morning. Landfall is expected by noon. The latest data from the Hurricane Hunters indicates that Dolly is trying to strengthen before the eye moves over land. Winds have now reached 95 mph with gusts over 100 mph. There is a very small window where she could become a category 2 right before landfall. The flooding is a big concern with over a foot of rain is expected in a 24 hour period. Tornadoes have also been reported in the outer rain bands, which is typical in a tropical system. Below are several links to some webcams near the storm.
