Hurricane Harvey Impact


IMG_8936

Hurricane Harvey wasn’t the most damaging tropical storm to blow through Rockport (the 1919 hurricane almost wiped the town off the map) but it certainly caused significant damage here. Residents have done a remarkable job rebuilding their community in the days since landfall (August 25, 2017), though about a quarter of the population hasn’t returned due to the housing shortage. Learning that fact, I feel especially fortunate to have found a cute little cottage to rent here.
