Forecasters say Hurricane Dolly has made landfall near South Padre Island in Texas.

Dolly is a Category 2 storm with top sustained winds near 100 mph.

The storm has forced thousands of people on both sides of the Texas-Mexico border into shelters. Heavy rains and high winds from the storm have collapsed an apartment roof, blown over signs and cut power to thousands of customers.

Landfall is when a storm's center crosses the coastline, but it does not necessarily indicate where the worst weather is.
