Any word on the neighborhood just west of Godard Park? My aunt and uncle evacuated from 34th Ave. and are safe in Tyler (Laura and George, aka "Rosie"). Sure would appreciate any info as to flooding or any damages (or not).

I haven't heard from my brother- he rode out the storm in his home on Meadow Lane (a couple of blocks behind the I45 McDonald's). No news and his phone's down. Any news on this area?
Thanks a lot- I hope that everything ends up well for everyone.
Kate -- greetings from a long lost friend! My dad heard from another neighbor that Meadow Lane looked pretty good, considering. Hope you're doing well.

Hey Jean Ann! Just heard from Bill that Harry's ok and had minimal damage to the house. It took a while but finally he was able to find a phone. I hope that you and your family are well- tell everyone hello. How funny to meet again like this!

My son said they were allowed to return to Texas City as of 9am Monday morning. Some friends returned yesterday morning and live at 13th Ave and 13th st...their house has a few shingles missing but no real damage. No electricity yet but there is electricity across the street from them...they aren't too far down from the school.

Linda it is Daniel from the Club Management. We have not heard any good news nor bad about the property. From many fly over videos I have seen I have yet to see our property. We are hoping to hear something soon and/or get back on the island to assess the damage.
Any word yet how our apt/condo community fared? Thx.
