We hope everyone fared well during the storm and stayed safe.
CenterPoint Energy is reporting hundreds of homes are without power this morning in Galveston. Technicians from the power company will be working to restore electricity, and you may track these power outages at www.centerpointenergy.com/stormcenter. If you see a downed line, please steer clear. All down lines should be assumed to be hot and could be dangerous.
High winds overnight led to debris in roadways. City crews are working to clear the roads and pick up debris. We ask that residents use extreme caution when driving. If lights are out at an intersection, treat the intersection as a four-way stop.
If you're on Tuesday's sanitation route, please place your carts on the curb this morning. The collection will begin at 10 a.m. and continue throughout the day. If an area is inaccessible due to debris, then that part of the route may be collected tomorrow.
As a reminder, the Galveston Independent School District, Galveston College, and Texas A&M University at Galveston have all canceled classes for the day.
Tropical Storm Nicholas is steadily moving northeast of the Houston region.
