Hurricane Hanna lashed the Texas shoreline with heavy rain and winds as it pummelled the Gulf Coast on Saturday.

The first hurricane of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season made landfall twice as a Category 1 storm, the first happening about 24 kilometers north of Port Mansfield and the second landfall nearby in eastern Kennedy County.

Heavy rain is likely to lead to “life-threatening” flash flooding in southern Texas and north-eastern Mexico even as Hurricane Hanna weakens, US officials have warned.

The hurricane made landfall on Saturday but has since been downgraded to a tropical storm.

But the US National Hurricane Centre (NHC) says that rains and strong winds “remain a threat”.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott had issued a disaster declaration for 32 counties. A storm surge warning on the Texan coast was later cancelled by the NHC.

Hanna was initially classified as a Category One hurricane, the lowest level on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, before being downgraded.

It made landfall on Padre Island on Saturday, and on Sunday moved into Mexico. With wind gusts of up to 90mph (145km/h), the storm was earlier tearing roofs off homes.

Any hurricane is an enormous challenge,” Gov Abbott said on Saturday. “This challenge is complicated and made even more severe, seeing that it is sweeping through an area that is the most challenged area in the state for Covid-19.

AT 22:00 local time on Saturday (03:00 GMT Sunday), maximum sustained winds were near 75mph, the NHC said.

It added that “rapid weakening is expected as Hanna moves farther inland” over Texas and into north-eastern Mexico on Sunday.

Separately, Hurricane Douglas – with maximum winds of up to 90mph – was approaching Hawaii in the Pacific, the NHC said, warning of damaging winds, flooding rainfall and dangerously high surf.

    The Lebanese Civil War. Please stop this madness go back to your houses relax let election happens we move forward or witness Beirut every day in USA.
    lasting from 1975 to 1990 and resulting in an estimated 120,000 fatalities.[5] As of 2012, approximately 76,000 people remain displaced within Lebanon.[6] There was also an exodus of almost one million people from Lebanon as a result of the war.[7]

    Before the war, Lebanon was multisectarian, with Sunni Muslims and Christians being the majorities in the coastal cities, Shia Muslims being mainly based in the south and the Beqaa Valley to the east, and with the mountain populations being mostly Druze and Christian. The government of Lebanon had been run under a significant influence of the elites among the Maronite Christians.[8][9] The link between politics and religion had been reinforced under the mandate of the French colonial powers from 1920 to 1943, and the parliamentary structure favored a leading position for its Christian population. However, the country had a large Muslim population and many pan-Arabist and left-wing groups opposed the pro-western government. The establishment of the state of Israel and the displacement of a hundred thousand Palestinian refugees to Lebanon during the 1948 and 1967 exoduses contributed to shifting the demographic balance in favor of the Muslim population. The Cold War had a powerful disintegrative effect on Lebanon, which was closely linked to the polarization that preceded the 1958 political crisis, since Maronites sided with the West while leftist and pan-Arab groups sided with Soviet-aligned Arab countries.[10]

    Fighting between Maronite and Palestinian forces (mainly from the Palestine Liberation Organization) began in 1975, then Leftist, pan-Arabist and Muslim Lebanese groups formed an alliance with the Palestinians.[11] During the course of the fighting, alliances shifted rapidly and unpredictably.
