Power Outages and Damage


The big concern around her and other places near Houston is when is power coming back. Particularly as some people have it and some don't. Much of Harris County will not have power until after Monday. "It will take until Oct. 1 to fully restore CenterPoint's service area."

Here is the official CenterPoint Energy page with lists and Southeast Texas maps. The links on that page to the right are better than the center list of when zip codes will be 80% restored as it has actual percentages of restoration and even some maps.

I hadn't linked here the damage pictures at this house. Now you have it. How has your property fared?

Here are Baytown stories. They had it a bit worse than here.
