Schools out for Wind
Posted by seanabrady on September 24, 2005
Well not exactly, but the mayor has asked all business to stay closed Monday and Tuesday to allow for an orderly return of citizens to the Houston area. More importantly though to allow emerency vehicles to get to east Texas and to the areas around Houston that need help. Schools for many districts have been cancelled through Tuesday (Alvin and Pearland are not on the lists currently however).
The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for today in the entire Houston area. Gusts will stay the same around 40 mph for the rest of the day.
As I have throughout the storm I am watching News2Houston. They were the only channel with continuous coverage of the storm since Wednesday, ABC and CBS have since switched, but to late to the game. The coverage has been good. They are reporting serious gas shortages, there is no gas with most stations down here saying it will be a day or more before they are refueled.
