Hurricane Harvey is still strengthening as it steers toward Texas today, and Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator Brock Long fears residents may not be heeding warnings to evacuate. "Texas is about to get hit by a major hurricane," Long said in an interview this morning on ABC News’ "Good Morning America." "I’m afraid that people may not be taking this storm seriously," he added. "That window to evacuate is coming to a close." Hurricane Harvey is expected to hit the Lone Star State as a category 3 storm when it makes landfall late tonight or early Saturday, bringing potentially devastating and life-threatening storm surge, rainfall and wind hazards to portions of the Texas coast.
