I haven't posted in a while, but I felt the need to recover my password now
just to stop by and wish good luck to all those facing Harvey. Going to bed now and I hope I don't wake up to a stronger, cat4 hurricane threatening you. The news I watched said something about this system continuing until Wednesday, that's crazy. Stay safe!

There is a nuclear power plant on the north shore of Matagorda bay that will be close to the northeastern eyewall.

The nuclear plant is 125 miles north of Corpus Christi.

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.

3 Hours ago they planned to keep running.


WADSWORTH – The South Texas Project nuclear power plant in Wadsworth has plans in place as Hurricane Harvey creeps towards the Texas Gulf Coast. Up to 250 employees will endure Hurricane Harvey from inside the plant.

At press time, both units at the nuclear power facility continue to operate at full power as Hurricane Harvey approaches.

STP’s Corporate Communications and External Affairs manager Buddy Eller anticipates as many as members of a pre-planned storm crew to hunker down inside the plant and closely monitor it for any damage.

There's this at a newer report but say they aren't shutting down .

If sustained winds exceed 73 mph, officials said they will take steps to shut down the units.

It is big but I don't think they will see the damage. It is a pretty well run and well maintained facility. It is closer to Palacios, according to google maps they are almost 20 miles from East Matagorda Bay and 17 miles from Tres Palacios Bay. I don't think they draw any water from the Bay. They are next to the Colorado River.

ETA: News just said the hurricane wind band has grown and will affect Palacios so they may get some higher winds.

I am west of Houston and work in town so it is pretty much non stop reporting. It supposed to rain until Thursday.

That's the really scary part... you don't want her parked on top of ya. Even a 1-2 parked over you can float your eyeballs. Stay safe my Gulf Coast friends!!!
