HOUSTON (AP) - Officials in South Texas say they’re prepared to handle any challenges from Tropical Storm Hanna. The storm is headed their way and expected to make landfall this weekend.

Corpus Christi Mayor Joe McComb says while officials have been dealing with the coronavirus pandemic for the last five months, they can also handle any impacts from Hanna.

Corpus Christi is in Nueces County, one of several coronavirus hot spots in Texas. Up to 12 inches of rain could fall in parts of South Texas due to Hanna.

The storm is expected to make landfall along the Texas coast on Saturday.
