This link is from the main page, so I assume it is OK to post here... should give a good indication of surge live

Yeah it's fine Mark is a friend of mine, his Tahoe cam links have been changing because of youtube so it's hard, there's time lapses of those cameras on http://flhurricane.com/cyclone/animationlist.php also

Great link! Best live video I've seen all day. Most of the usual Texas beach cams were overwhelmed and barely working, if at all.

YouTube may change Hurricane voyeurism forever!

Radar shows the eye slowing down or shrinking, the storm still appears to be strengthening, even now. It's beginning to wrap around to the east side too, so it may be a very prolonged period of extreme winds, especially around Matagorda and Rockport.

It appears the bandwidth, or Harvey, stopped the Live video from streaming.

Note to myself: Build the Hurricane proof cam system that can handle the tens of thousands of visitors that love to watch a storm.

Oh maybe it came back on, I hear the wind blowing in the stream...

Jeff is only a few miles from the eye wall, Harvey is coming ashore between Rockport and Fulton, TX. Based on the radar maybe a touch NE at where Hwy 35N crosses Copano Bay.

Jeff's feed https://www.pscp.tv/Jeff_Piotrowski/1zqKVRbYXWWKB

the car wash he was hanging out in collapsed, and they are scrambling.

Harvey's eyewall appears to be stalling right over where he is in Rockport.

A car wash?? I'm not sure I'd pick a car wash to ride out a typical Florida thunderstorm!

I am sure they are concerned. Thinking Camille Hurricane Party...

Hope the best for him. Wish I could get his app on my PC.

Harvey has come ashore at San Jose Island, TX. Jeff's feed was lost when the roof came off the car wash, he reported winds in multiple directions so likely just entering the eye. Either the meter broke or this weather station is in the eye now: https://www.wunderground.com/MAR/buoy/RCPT2.html

The bay parts inland a bit from Rockport are probably getting hit extremely hard too, damage will likely be wide spread, and surge we don't even really know about yet (bayside may eb bad)

Appears that Harvey has completely stalled or is doing a small loop (maybe even drifting back southeast) on radar

Harvey is moving slowly toward the
north-northwest near 2 mph (4 km/h), and little motion is
anticipated during the next several days.

Already over three reports. JASUS have you ever seen anything like it on a major hurricane?
