Nicholas was still strengthening when he came ashore and had some grit in him. I live near Lake Conroe Dam and and we are having gusts up to 40 or so currently. Sorry to hear about some of the damage y'all have had.

Man, I'm hoping for a quiet 20 years for the Louisiana coast after this season Blake. Hopefully this will be it for this season. I'm going to start looking for that first good cold front.

Just got a few pics from a friend's place on Pirate's Cove in Galveston. Looks like they had a pretty impressive storm surge last night.

Is it just me or does it look to be headed for open water again skirting the coast? My radar looks like the eye is trying to push back offshore SE of Houston

Could have been much worse for Houston proper.

Any word from the West End of Galveston? Saw some drone footage from Surfside that looked like they had substantial wind damage as well.

He said they had about 4"-5" of water in the room downstairs. He saw some carports here & there that were torn up, but no widespread damage.

I feel fortunate. Lost power around 1am last night and it came back on about 11:30am. Spent about three hours cleaning the backyard this morning. Had two big limbs break and my back fence fell over in about a 16’ section. Pool looks like a moat. Other than that.....all good.

Not to bad in Alvin, yard was a mess but no major damage. Power went out last night at 2:00AM and is still out. Got the generator running and we are feeling lucky nothing worse happened.

About 8" of rain here SE of Beaumont. Slept through the worst winds according to my neighbor's reports. No issues personally but there were some sporadic power outages around the area.

Blessed to get through another one.

The eye went directly over our house. Lots of huge trees down and no power. House didn’t have any damage though so I’m blessed. My daughter lives in Brazoria and got power back yesterday afternoon so we got to take a shower there last night.

We got power back yesterday evening around 8pm.
Got about half of the small limbs picked up yesterday thanks to the wife & kids piling them up while I was at work. Should get the rest today. Like others, I feel fortunate.
My parents have a house in Sargent up the creek a ways, and there was no damage.

We have had 3 flood this year, and I am so glad this didn't turn out to be another one!

I was surprised at how this storm caught allot of people off guard. I know of 5 generator carbs that needed rebuilding yesterday morning, and some folks that didn't even have gas for theirs. I just can't roll like that! I felt insecure with only 50 gallons of gas on hand.....LOL

Lol, you and I think alike. I seems to always over prepare and still doesn't seem like enough. I catch crap from friends n family but he'll, I'm gonna use it all eventually. Lol

The GFS, CMC and Euro show a decent cool front around the 22nd. Come on with it.

Same here. Have enough fuel for five days of power outage, and we live a hour inland. My wife just loves seeing that bill LOL, but the first time we lose power in August, shes going to really appreciate it!

I drove through Surfside on the way to West Galveston yesterday. Surfside had more road debris and house damage than Galveston.

I didn't see much house damage in Galveston except there were several houses under construction in the framing stage that completely collapsed. The beachside condos at Pointe West had a lot of damage to break-away walls on the ground level. I know at least 3 boats in Sea Isle and 1 in Terramar that came loose from their boat slips

There is still no electricity on the island west of Jamaica Beach.

Commodities I learned go scarce quick during hurricane Laura that I now have stocked up. 30 weight oil. It was all gone. You gotta change oil in those gens. With no power for so long we were able to run our washing machine but not Dryer. Clothes pins, all gone. Propane for cooking, all gone. Spare parts for generator, spark plugs, coil wire, etc. Better have those on hand. Of course I am also sitting on 50gals of non-ethanol gas with startron treatment in it. When we're in the clear from this season I will burn it all in my camper generator during deer season and then re-stock in the spring for next hurricane season.
