Are These Houses In Galveston Still Standing?

I took this picture in Galveston a few months ago. The picture is of houses under construction on the beach. I wondered to myself how long it would be until a hurricane came and blew them away or washed them away.

I’ve not been to Galveston since Hurricane Ike. I intend to go within the next few weeks. Maybe I can get a before and after picture for the blog. Though much of the beach is gone at the moment. I might have to take the picture from a different angle.

Here is the United Way Hurricane Ike relief fund.

  1. Come to think of it; if you do make it to Galveston – currently there may well be a travel ban BTW – Warren Street at ‘They Gave Us a Republic’ had been decrying lack of media attention to the aftermath. Many of us are fearing coverup and worse. I’m sure a note if you do post a report would be welcome.

  2. ? Your spam filter – or assorted gremlins – may have misrouted the link to USGS before and after shots of Crystal Beach.http://coastal.er.usgs.gov/hurricanes/ike/photo-comparisons/bolivar.html
