It was called the 3rd strongest hurricane ever recorded. Thank God it died down to a category 3 and missed the Galveston/Houston area late last night by about 100 miles.
I grew up just south of Houston and went through Hurricane Alicia in 1983, the last major hurricane to directly hit Houston/Galveston. It was crazy and scary. We still have friends with businesses and homes in that area and thankfully, they were all sparred any major destruction.
It has been a crazy hurricane season….and it’s not over yet.
