Texas Says Hello (Hurricane) Dolly!

Yesterday, Hurricane Dolly made landfall in Southern Texas in the town of South Padre Island, with 120 mph winds ripping roofs off homes, pouring down rain, and sending residents looking for shelter. Contact with land brought the winds down from category 2 speeds to category 1, and now flooding along the Rio Grande has become the main concern over the next few days, thanks to Dolly's "sluggish nature."

Over 3,000 residents of low-lying areas by the river and the coast went to crowded schools for shelter. One school had 800 evacuees, including children and babies. Insurance experts estimate the Dolly's insurance company price tag to be $1.2 billion. Damage caused in Mexico will be about a quarter of that. While avoiding the valuable oil rigs in the Gulf, the heavy rain and wind most likely destroyed the cotton fields in the region.

Meteorologists see indications that the rest of this year's hurricane season could be very active — so hold on!
