Hurricane Harvey is currently wreaking havoc in the South—enough to force show cancellations in Texas.
According to the New York Times, the storm is being propelled by the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and is sweeping its way up toward Texas. Harvey has been named a Category 4 storm and is expected to make landfall between late Friday and early Saturday.
