Wow, I don't know what to think about these now!!

Just an update on the Historic areas of Galveston...

Of the appox. 7,000 historic structures on the island, 1,500 of them recieved significant damage, but most of it was just broken windows and street-level flooding. Obviously the island won't be up and running again for a while, but there is hope for it to open up to tourism in a few months.

Here's a news article on the historic Galveston from abc13.com
