Hurricane Harvey weakens, likely to become tropical storm - NHC

HOUSTON, Aug 26 (Reuters) - Hurricane Harvey weakened to a category 1 hurricane as it moved inland over Texas on Saturday and would likely become a tropical storm later, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

Harvey was the strongest storm in more than 50 years to hit Texas when it came ashore late Friday as a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale. That is the second most powerful category of storm measured by the speed of sustained winds. (Reporting by Liz Hampton; Writing by Simon Webb; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
