Texans evacuate ahead of Hurricane Harvey
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) —
With millions of people in Hurricane Harvey's path, many chose to evacuate towards Alabama.
Traveling with two dogs and a three-year-old isn't easy but staying in Texas was not an option for Beth Carey from Texas.
"I live in Wharton, Texas where the storm is hitting, maybe 30 miles from my house."
Carey evacuated at 4 this morning and during her drive, Harvey upgraded to a category four hurricane.
"Nobody that i know left besides me i guess everyone is just hunkering down at home hopefully everything goes well there."
Hotels in the Mobile area are preparing for an influx of evacuees but haven't had many yet.
