San Leon Texas Devastated By IKE....

Dickinson, TX (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: San Leon, Texas...just north of Galveston Island across the bay and due east of Dickinson,Texas was devastated by the storm surge that Hurricane Ike sent out way Friday night and early Saturday morning. I have never seen devastation like this in this community. Talked to several old timer that I have known for some time that to a person told me that this was on par with the damage that Hurricane Carla did back in '61. I was only to survey the area from FM 517 going into town and made it as far as 1st St. before it was time to head in before dark. Most of the businesses there on both the Dickinson Bayou side as well as the marinas on the north shore are completely destroyed. I had reports this afternoon of fatalities here as well. Sure wish those folks had evacuated and not tried to ride out the storm....TXCUDA
