Its a big storm..
The northernmost of the three bays is Matagordo and the nuclear power plant sticks down in the bay.
Highest winds might miss it by 25 miles but Matagordo looks like it will get the worst storm surge.
I'm not sure what effect the barrier islands will have on storm surge further south but the tide at Matagorda bay will likely pile up and flood at the northern end

The plant is designed to withstand 157 mph winds and it takes a while shut a nuclear power plant down.
I would be more worried about the high tension power lines near the plant.



Why is hell would they not have shut this down from the get go... the debris field alone generated from storms could clog the cooling intakes!!! It's just power people, it's going to go anyway.

Here is a link to a picture of downtown Houston during Allison - tropical storm with a similar setup and track as Harvey. Over 30" of rain. Hope the link works.

Pierce Avenue is known as the Pierce Elevated. Downtown streets are below it. The Medical Center flooded all the basements. The downtown tunnels flooded.

Port A is gonna get slammed... was just there last summer for my buddies bachelor party and they know lots of folks down there, including a crazy (and amazingly awesome) charter fishing captain who are riding this out. I am very worried about them...

Looks like for now my colleagues family dodged a bullet (not sure about flooding to come)

Would that charter captain be Capn Ron by chance. He used to be in Freeport but not sure now.

Hate even sharing this one.

- Rockport, Texas, officials are advising residents who refuse to evacuate to write their names and Social Security number on a forearm, Mayor Pro Tem Patrick Rios told CNN. Rios said it will "help out first responders should they find a body."

I heard them say that on FOX.

That's grim, but if you were told to go and you didn't and there is no help able to come for you ...

Stay safe people.

We just had a T10 typhoon, wild. Super Typhoon.

First T10 in 5 years. Check out how Macau fared. Whole island lost power, 3 dead. Tropical Cyclone Hato.

Oh joy, we are gearing up for a severe tropical storm tomorrow. Standby T1 signal has been hoisted.

This one is Tropical Storm Pakhar. Macau will get hit again.

Link to a bunch of YT vids if interested.

This storm will be unlike any Hurricane the U.S. has seen in modern times. People who stayed in the area will feel like they're in that Noah's Ark movie. The water will just keep rising and rising. Like being in a pot where the heat is gradually being turned up, until....

I saw that. Chilling. Maybe it will give some a clue for next time. Just want to be able to identify those they 'recovered'.

Reports of building collapses in Rockport. People trapped. I hope most evacuated from that whole area. An ATS member posted earlier that they evacuated. Stay safe everyone.
