Weather: ‘Harvey’ upgraded to hurricane

Update: Tropical Storm Harvey has been upgraded to a hurricane, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards has declared a state of emergency as a precaution ahead of the hurricane due to the threat of flooding and the possibility of Louisiana being in the path of the hurricane after it hits Texas, according to Nola.com.
