Hurricane Harvey Next Steps for Port Aransas Residents
Though all but a handful of people evacuated before the storm hit the shoreline, Port Aransas was still severely affected by Hurricane Harvey. Due to large debris in the roads and several large gas leaks, people were asked to stay out of Port Aransas for a longer period of time than residents of other cities were required to. In spite of these factors, national and, to a certain extent, local news coverage of the hurricane has focused on Rockport, where the storm first made landfall, and Corpus Christi, the larger city to the south.
