Tropical Storm Nicholas could “cause life-threatening flash floods across the deep South during the next couple of days,” the National Hurricane Center says. The storm, which reached hurricane strength late Monday, made landfall along the central Texas coast early Tuesday before weakening back into a tropical storm. Nicholas was about 30 miles south-southwest of Houston at 4 a.m. CDT and about 35 miles north-northwest of Freeport, Texas, and was moving north-northeast at 9 miles an hour. It had maximum sustained winds of 70 mph, dropping below the 74 mph threshold for a hurricane.

It’s expected to produce additional rainfall of 5 to 10 inches from the upper Texas coastal area into central to southern Louisiana. The impact to energy infrastructure across the coast line is unknown at the moment.
