Hurricane Delta Surge Poses Potential Threat to Safety

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The National Weather Service advises impacts from Hurricane Delta in Corpus Christi are expected to be high risk of rip currents and minor to moderate coastal flooding. A coastal flood watch is in effect for Corpus Christi, Mustang and Padre Island this Thursday evening through Friday morning.
