Hanna Spares Our Area of Major Damage


Hurricane Hanna has spared the Greater Houston Area of major damage - although more rain is still on its way. Rain bands will continue in the Houston area through Sunday.

Hanna officially made landfall at 5:00pm Saturday on Padre Island as a Category One storm -- whipping up 90 mile per hour winds and a storm surge that already washed away a popular fishing pier. Coastal flood warnings continue from Brownsville all the way to Galveston, where out-of-towners surveyed the beach to see what a hurricane looked like!

Meanwhile, Tim Cady at the National Weather Service says things are already calming down in the Houston area. Hanna forced many in the Corpus Christi area to evacuate, typically they run up the San Antonio area. Texas Emergency Management Chief Nim Kidd says they've had to get creative due to the ongoing pandemic.

Back down in Corpus, the Texas National Guard, FEMA and others are assisting with any evacuations or high water rescues.
