Sabine Pass and surrounding areas feeling Rita’s wrath.

I don’t know if anything I’m posting has already been said because I’m trying to get this in before the power goes out!!!

Looks like we missed the brunt of the storm at the last moment. It turned towards Sabine Pass and the eye made landfall 5 miles east of the pass. Todd’s hometown, Port Arthur, has taken a beating all night long with wind gusts up to 116 miles per hour, I believe. Todd is already setting up a site to help the people surrounding Sabine pass with resources after the storm. Good job, Todd. I hope his family’s home is okay, though it is very near the water. I am sure glad his mom got the heck out of there! Posting this before I lose power. My brother is a few miles away and is without power. The lights keep blinking on and off here. The Woodlands has received a little rain. 3/4 inch has made it into the rain gage. Nothing compared with the projected 24 inches predicted for areas getting the bad end of the storm. Though, with the wind, that is not very accurate. Stay safe everyone!!!

    Hello.

    I was wondering what the status of Sabine Pass is right now if anyone knows.

    Thanks,
