    My sis is in Houston and watching this closely...hopefully it will burn out before it gets there, as is the custom. However Galveston Island WAS destroyed by a hurricaine around the turn of the century, so it has happened.

    yes, I remember the Galveston flood..so terrible. Those poor children at the beach orphanage with the Nuns..all gone.."the whole island was destroyed"..many ppl wiped out.

    Good luck to your sister

    I am glad that they are evacuating and taking extreme precautions, but worried sick about the possible outcome. My prayers are with everyone in the projected areas.
