Hurricane Harvey reached the coast of Texas on Friday night as a Category 4 storm, the strongest hurricane to hit the state in decades.

The storm made landfall between Port Aransas and Port O'Connor, and nearby areas were slammed with torrential rains and winds as strong as 130 mph.

As the hurricane continues to inch through Texas, it leaves behind flooding, downed trees and destroyed buildings in its wake.
