Hurricane "Hana" hit the coast of south Texas, USA, yesterday evening Saturday, accompanied by strong winds and strong waves, threatening a large area already suffering from a large increase in the number of deaths from the Corona virus.
"Hana" is the first hurricane in the current Atlantic hurricane season expected to differ from any previous season in recent memory. The authorities will struggle to evacuate and house the population, while maintaining social separation protocols and other restrictions to contain the epidemic.
The governor of Texas, the United States of America, Greg Abbott, announced a natural disaster caused by the hurricane in some of the state's provinces, and sent a request to the President of the country, Donald Trump, to impose the state's emergency system.
According to state data, a natural disaster has been announced in 32 provinces of the state.
Hurricane Hana is expected to cause floods and high winds, which could lead to property damage, injuries, and even casualties.
Hurricane winds hit the coast of Texas near the Corpus Christi area by evening at speeds of up to 150 kilometers per hour, and the National Hurricane Center predicted that large waves would sweep a large area along the coast of approximately 482 kilometers, from Sargent to the north to Port Mansfield in the south.
The center said the hurricane would weaken as it moved on land inside Texas and across northeastern Mexico.
