Weekly Weather: Flood

In 2009 my daughter moved to Galveston, Texas just weeks before Hurricane Ike hit.  Fortunately, my daughter lived right behind the seawall and her home was relatively protected.  However, only a few blocks away the historic district of Galveston flooded.  This is the mark of the flooding and the height of the flood waters. I’m only 5 foot 4 inches tall to give some perspective.
