Tropical Storm Nicholas strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane late Monday night — just hours before it was expected to slam into the Texas coast and make landfall in the state.

The storm was packing sustained winds of 75 mph and is expected to drench portions of the middle and upper Texas coast with rains that could cause substantial flooding.

Shortly before midnight, Nicholas was located about 45 miles southwest of Freeport, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The hurricane was moving north-northeast at a clip of about 10 mph, but is expected to slow down over land — eventually making its way eastward toward southwestern Louisiana by about Wednesday, the NHC said.

Hurricane warnings are currently in effect from Port O’Connor to Freeport in Texas. Tropical storm and storm surge warnings were also issued for parts of the state.
