Has everyone in Bacliff been rescued? There were several people still there, and were running out of water and food as of yesterday evening.

Does anyone know if meals and help have arrived in that area? They can't get out.

This was on Sutton Street. Craig & Lynette Carlson live at 306, and they have joined with several others who were stranded there...

My cousin lives on Dolrece and her house escaped damage. As far as I know, the power is not back on there yet.

Does 100 avenue A have power? Or the ability to? I am trying to find my cousin housing with electricity in the area to lease. She owns Gingers Coastal Eatery and lost her home to the sea. Anyone know any viable housing for lease? I am a realtor and am checking everything in MLS but maybe there are more out there available?
