U.S. residents living on the Gulf Coast are hitting grocery stores searching for water and other essentials before a potentially life-threatening hurricane makes landfall.

The National Weather Service forecasts Tropical Storm Harvey will be upgraded to a major hurricane by Friday, “bringing life-threatening storm surge, rainfall, and wind hazards to portions of the Texas coast.”

At least one photo from a Sam’s Club in Corpus Christi depicts a long check-out line full of people, while a caption reads, “Waiting to buy water for #Harvey.“
