Typical Street Having Minor Damage... some had aggravation and some had no visible problems as evidenced by the home immediately across from the camera.

No flooding here, but a block away, major flooding... two blocks away, traffic lights on the ground and a gas station with a waiting line two hours+ long, but Houston is recovering; not so with Galveston... not many panos there only ruined homes and lots and lots of sand and trash.

Here, as you can see, some homes escaped damage more so than others. If I had done a 360-pano, you would have seen lots of tree limbs stacked up at the curb for later pickup as in LATER.

The wind was blowing so hard about 2 or 3 Saturday morning, at one point, I believed I was losing the roof to my home, but come Saturday afternoon when it was safe to go outside for a few moments, all I saw missing were a few shingles.
