Galveston is getting slamed right now..I'm in DT Houston and wind is steady but nothing too bad yet. Will try to give updates up untill I lose power which I expect around 8pm today.

Im in west houston. Dont think we are going to get alot of wind. But the storm surge is really bad. Thye are saying a storm surge of cat 4 or cat 5.

when I left my beach house yesterday, the water was at the bottom of the bulkhead. Saw a pic earlier of the house next door, and the water was halfway to the house.

Gonna get some water in this one.

It's blowin like hell here - we're stayin on the San Jac - the high end of course - I'll have some video later. Had our first tree snap and missed one of the boats by a foot or two.

Got my new floating dock out last night - and just in time. It would of slid off the end poles as of this morning.....

My bro's boat house's dock is usually 3 ft above the water - it's 5 -7 ft over it now - Wind is blowin out of the north with some fierce gust.

Hope everyone is safe!!
