Hurricane Harvey has made landfall in Texas with winds of up to 130mph (215 km/h) battering coastal areas.

The storm, which has even stronger gusts, is expected to be the worst to hit Texas for 12 years. Up to 40in (1m) of rain is expected to fall.

President Donald Trump has signed a disaster proclamation for the state, which will free up federal aid for the worst-affected areas.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has warned of record flooding in multiple regions.

The category four storm has already brought down trees in the city of Corpus Christi and thousands of residents have boarded up their homes and fled.
