Hurricane Beryl will make landfall in a few hours

Hurricane Beryl strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane as it moved toward the Texas Gulf Coast, where it is expected to make landfall Monday morning just north of the U.S.-Mexico border.

The storm, the first Category 5 Atlantic hurricane on record, killed at least seven people in the Windward Islands before skirting southern Jamaica, disrupting communications, stranding tourists and bringing storm surge and torrential rains to the island.

This is how the news develops.
