We had a heavy rain a few years ago that even though we were miles from water, it saturated the ground so fully that it leaked right into our home.

Hopefully, with no basement, that, you should be safe from any damage.

House sits on a concrete slab. We don't get water until the entire drainage pond near us overflows.

Ike came ashore only slightly stronger in sustained winds than where Harvey currently is and was about a $30 billion disaster. Ike also missed the main Houston ship channel enough to keep it alive. A category 2 or 3 that hits the main estuary is a potential Sandy level disaster.


I actually rode out Alica in 1983. Supposedly Alica and Rita did nothing compared to what Ike did. On a recent trip through that part of the state I was shocked how much of the Bolivar Pennisula was abandoned, and even how much of Galveston never got rebuilt.

Alica and Ike both hit a bit further south, while Rita more more towards the LA state line. This storm will be well south of all of them for landfall.

It would be pretty crazy to get it to go out to deep enough water and repower enough to push a storm surge again and have it then turn back around again towards the Galveston area. I know the rainfall amounts are going to be crazy from the storm stalling, but as of earlier today Jim Cantore made it sound like only the European model pushed it back out to the Gulf far enough to regroup, but that it would make landfall much further (like west LA) east the second time.

Just spotted my first funnel cloud in real life. It was short lived and never hit the ground, but wow what a rush!

Hurricane Irma out in the Atlantic is already a category 3.

Looks to be heading toward the Eastern Seaboard.
