I have friends and family from Houston to north of Dallas, so I’m worried. If the storm continues as projected, the storm will remain at hurricane strength for several hours after landfall. San Antonio, Austin, Waco, and Dallas could get knocked around, and plenty of parts of Dallas are on or near the flood plane of the Trinity River.
Update: the storm’s now tracking northwards. It will still hit Houston hard, but San Antonio and Austin appear won’t take the remnants head-on. But there’s still plenty of people in East Texas who’ll see the wind and rain. Rafe, I hope your family gets to Longview okay.
I’ve spent part of the day checking in with family to make sure they have my number so I can collect and pass along messages when phone and power get flakey.
If you are the storm’s projected path, my thoughts are with you, and if you need a number outside of the storm zone you can use as a message drop, send me a email: bill at whump dot com.
