Texas Governor Greg Abbott has issued a disaster declaration for the state's 29 counties in response to tropical storm Beta as it draws closer to the US Gulf Coast. Expected to make landfall on Tuesday, Beta has already caused storm surge and damaging winds in the state's coastal area, reports Xinhua news agency. According to the latest forecast, it has the potential to cause widespread flooding as it continues to approach the Texas Coast. "As tropical storm Beta approaches the coast, I urge Texans in the path of the storm to remain vigilant and take necessary precautions to keep themselves and their loved ones safe from flooding, storm surge, and other impacts from this severe weather," Abbott said in a statement on Monday.
