cat one storm, lots of rain! some high tides. I've ridden out more cat 1 and 2 storms on the TX coast than I can remember. maybe the rain will help end the drought in the southeast.

It's Not A Drought Anymore. We've Had Average Rainfall. It'll Be Like This For A While, We'll Just Have To Deal With it..

ok, then your ground is nearing saturation, then that will mean localized flooding in the path of the storm. the last cat 2 storm I was in knocked the power out for about 4 hours but that was about the only noteworthy item.

the cat 1 storm that went in a few weeks ago at Brownsville, TX did apparently cause a fatality in Cameron County TX, but fatalities are rare in the smaller storms, as long as you stay out of the creeks, ditches and tidal areas.

when I was a small boy, a giant cat 5 storm hit the upper TX coast (175 mph winds) where I grew up, causing massive damage. After reading your post, I was just pulling out the photo album from those years and looking at the damage back then to my parent's property. That brought back memories of my dad nailing the shutters on the house and us getting in the car and heading up to Dallas to get out of the storm's path. I think dozens of people lost their lives along the coast due to drowning during that storm, and by today's standards, multi billions of dollars in damage.
