Depends on the winds I imagine...and how fast storm moves out...
If it reverses tomorrow as some predict still at high wind MPH then likely workers could have same issues of repair...
Because more rain by then could weaken more trees that might fall...
Those guys have a no-win situation to some degree...

Any news from Port Aransas? I read they were without power and water, but nothing else about damage.

This news article explains that the biggest threat and danger of hurricane harvey is only just starting

Quote:
There are no analogs for this storm in Texas, or possibly even the entire U.S. Meteorologists Jeff Masters and Bob Henson of Weather Underground wrote on Friday that this storm has few, if any, precedent in hurricane history.
Do not be fooled: Hurricane Harvey's deadliest threat is just starting

Prayers from Tennessee, in fact our whole church prayed for y'all this morning. Watching the news I am very worried for those in the way of this storm. I can't even imagine what 50 inches of rain looks like.
