What about the area around BP Amoco and all the restaraunts on the main drag? Did they suffer any damage? I used to live in the apartments next to Dennys coming in to Texas City.

Glad Texas City didn't have worse damage. I heard that 6 inch more and water would have gone over the levee. Have family in T.C.

Glad to learn there is going to be a bus service now. That will help so many people!!

Enjoying the news page. I am from T.C.
