The pictures below were taken in Galveston the summer of 2006. In the pictures below you will see that this house is now GONE!
Tomball Business and Professional Women hold a Ways and Means committee retreat every July at one of our members beach house in Galveston. Our member was fortunate in that her house remained intact. Everything below the house blew out. She said when she came back it was so clean it looked as though it had been swept with a broom. She did have a baby sting ray swimming in the pool. It unfortunately ended up being a casualty also.
She is doing a wonderful job getting her house back in order but as you can see from the pictures her neighbors house did not fare as well. These pictures give a visual representation of the devastation that Hurricane Ike caused to Galveston Island.
The pictures below were taken in Galveston the summer of 2009.
I grew up in Tornado country not Hurricane country but the way this picked and chose it reminds me of the devastation after a tornado.
