I remember you said Texas might be hit by a storm just a week or so ago. When I saw that I thought we might be in trouble. Our local met says we may see wind and rain if the storm hits around Matagorda Bay. Also possibly power outages. Carla did affect the whole Texas coast. Port Arthur had four feet of water in some of its downtown area. Allison did quite a bit of damage in this area but especially Houston and she was just a tropical storm. Last major cane to hit Houston was Alicia and she went through the downtown. Here, we haven't had a hurricane since '86 and only a cat 1 although several tropical storms since then. Everyone is preparing early just in case. Many of our evacuees from New Orleans were flown out, I think to Tennessee. Houston was flying some out also. Galveston is evacuating. Better to be overprepared than not prepared.
