Hurricane Season / Be Prepared

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif"> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif">Fall Season temperature changes have started to occur on the Texas upper gulf coast.  With the cooler temperatures, we have Fall/Fog Season.  Along with the cooler temperatures, cold fronts will be arriving in our area as well.  The cold fronts will push water out of the bays to the gulf and maximum water levels will drop anywhere from 1 – 2 feet, usually for about 24 – 48 hrs depending on the high pressure and north winds when the cold front pushes through, maximum deep draft vessels may be delayed berthing when this occurs.
