Its path is expected to continue over eastern Texas later Monday, July 8th.

Hurricane Beryl made landfall early Monday morning in Texas on the Matagorda Peninsula, about 85 miles southwest of Houston. Beryl hit as a Category 1 storm, with winds reaching 80 mph. Its path will take it inland over eastern Texas.

According to the National Weather Service, Beryl is expected to “bring very heavy rain, damaging hurricane-force winds and life-threatening storm surge to the Texas coast.”

Beryl has already traveled through the Caribbean as the earliest Category 5 storm ever recorded in the Atlantic, causing at least 11 deaths and widespread destruction. It then traveled across Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula and the Gulf of Mexico. Beryl is expected to weaken as it travels overland, becoming a tropical storm on Monday.

Hundreds of thousands of people in Texas were without power as of Monday morning. CenterPoint Energy reported more than 1.1 million customers were affected in the Houston region alone, according to the company’s outage tracker.
