Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, there is the Houston ship channel.  Fortunately, the eye went almost directly over Galveston, so the worst of the winds and surge hit Port Arthur.  Had the hurricane hit about 25 miles south of Galveston, we might have gotten the 20'+ storm surge in the bay and channel.  That was where they thought it was going when they issued the warnings about 20'+ storm surges.  Small shifts can make big differences.  Hope not too many people draw the wrong lesions here.
