  1. Yeah I just checked out the League City website and they haven't updated their info since yesterday afternoon. Do they understand that, for example, Ike was east of them, but this storm is west of them so they're on the storm surge side? They're under a storm surge warning for 4-7 feet. This website shows the difference in flooding if Ike had been west of Galveston Bay, instead of down the middle. https://www.texastribune.org/hell-and-high-water/ I think part of the problem is they're not under a Hurricane warning, just Tropical Storm, and so that downplays the danger.

  6. My friends just moved to a block from the water in Stuart, FL and were going to ride it out. I found this photo montage from Hurricane Jeanne and it convinced them to move inland. Maybe it's worth a try? http://www.floridatoday.com/picture-gallery/weather/hurricanes/2014/09/03/photos-looking-back-hurricane-jeanne-10-years-later/15018577/
