Wednesday Night Storm Smashes Through Corpus Christi Area

Wednesday night, June 2, a strong pair of storm fronts converged right over Corpus Christi bringing winds in excess of hurricane force, up to 90 mph in some areas, and driving rains. It was something of a mini hurricane which lasted for around 4 hours.
At Corpus Christi Naval air Station, near my home, RV's were blown over and six people were injured. A boat barn which had been newly completed was blown out into the Laguna Madre.
Damage was caused all over the area including roofs blown away, trees down and power was knocked out for over 67,000 people. 
As of this morning some still are waiting for power to be restored.
