What’s ahead for Texas? A meteorologist lays it out:
A landfall 20 to 30 miles south of Galveston would be devastating not only for Galveston, but also for Houston because the eye wall of the storm would also come over that city with winds probably in excess of 100 mph. Landfall 20 to 30 miles north of Galveston would be less catastrophic for Houston, but up the coast in Beaumont and Port Arthur, where there are major refineries and natural gas pipelines, the result would be much worse.
Whatever way it turns out, this is going to be another life changing, historic storm.
It’s going to be tough to focus on much else this weekend.
