Just some rain 30 north of Galveston...weíre 200 miles plus north of Corpus (landfall)...and 55 MPH in Corpus is only about 20 mph more than the daily wind.

As said--going farther south--we have 25-30 wind, some rain and a couple feet higher tide.

Ha! Ha! If this was right none of us would be here! How about 40 mph more then our daily wind? 12 to 15 is normal with an occasional 20.

I know youíre technically right, but my wife always describes the place as a leaf blower in an oven and I have to agree.

So its a Cat 1 hurricane and the current storm surge is 3 - 4ft. So how is it that when TS Cristobal hit south MS with winds just barely 50mph several months ago the storm surge was more like 8 ft? Gotta love the COE for the massive levee they built in SE LA. Thanks a ton idiots.

Yall come out ok? Just soggy wet and tree branches everywhere in town.

The eye hit my ranchito but I will have to let it dry out for a couple weeks before I can get in to ascertain damage.

Hearing that the island is without power and the cell tower backup generators are running out of fuel. North Padre going dark for awhile.

Ended up working through the storm more of an inconvenience than anything. We did lose power for 12 or so hours and thatís about it, Iíll try and post a few videos of the storm later.

The biggest loser was Bob Hall pier ... a lot of wave action in the Gulf ... still can't believe the multi ton concrete slabs and piers that it's constructed of gave way ... power went off about 11:30pm on Saturday back on 9:30pm Sunday ... mostly limbs down and not much damage but next door neighbor had a 6ft x 30ft stucco wall blown over ... been lucky so far, Hanna went in 30-40 miles south of us and in '17 Harvey went in 30-40 miles north of us ...
