Hopefully, your meteorologists are better at forecasting than ours.
Thoughts and prayers to all Texans tonight from your northern neighbours.
Thank you very much for your thoughts and prayers. They are greatly appreciated by all of Texans.
It's 1:31 am and we don't have a drop of rain or any wind. I believe being 300 + miles away we are fine. No one around here has left but we are prepared.

Yes, prayers go out to all affected, especially those who have no power and can't see these messages.

I love hurricanes, been in a couple of them including Hurricane David in a tent.

In answer to your original question, I read somewhere else, but cannot now find it, you should leave your slides out, as it breaks up the wind hitting your RV and therefore, less chance of it blowing it over. If you have a choice, place your RV and truck facing the wind.

Hope everyone is OK. I live on the east coast and have been through more hurricanes to Cat 3 than I wish to count. Here are 'my rules'; Cat one, just have a party and hope the electric stays on which it usually does ~~ Cat 2 at the hint of a mid-lever or higher 2 send my family in the area least likely to receive much if anything ~~ Cat 3 I'm hooking the 5er and getting us all out of the area. One Cat 3 was enough for me.

The mayor of Rockport, Tx. is the one that suggested writing your SS number on your arm. Only residents of Rockport that planned on staying was asked to do this, not the entire state. Lumberton is about 15 miles due north of Beaumont,Tx which is about 300 miles northeast of Rockport.

The eye passed over Rockport according to news I'm watching right now with one confirmed fatality. Also said that 40% of Rockport residents did not evacuate and city is too damaged for S&R people to enter city yet.

Flooding is now the big threat and they are expecting some HUGE floods. The "tap" is not expected to be turned off for several days and lots of rain is on the forecast.

The problem with evacuating is many of those that do not have bad ideas. That is my reason unless a Cat 3 or higher. Once the storm passes it takes at least hours for 1st responders to get in and secure the area. It can takes days or longer before residents are permitted in. Only residents to keep the looters out but there are some that stayed for that very reason. Several times the electric is out for very extended periods even though linemen arrive from several states away.

We had the Tornado from down your way come just East of Lufkin this afternoon!

They said it came up 69 from down there, around Huntington, and then just Northeast of us a few miles.

The coverage I saw of Rockport did not look good at all.

Yes I was out checking on my daughter's home when it passed through Lumberton very close to where I was. Scary!
