Beryl is quickly weakening, barely holding onto tropical storm status. Tropical storm-force winds can extend outward up to 125 miles, mainly impacting southeast of the center of the storm. Areas that were hit this morning as Beryl made landfall will see wind gusts significantly decrease throughout the evening, while some areas such as Liberty and Anahuac upwards to Crocket and Lufkin will continue to see some gustier winds well into the evening hours. There is still a chance for widespread power outages, downed trees, and potential damage to roofs.
