Description: Hurricane Harvey made landfall on Aug 25th near Rockport, Texas as a Category 4 Hurricane with winds of 130 mph. The resulting tropical storm meandered in the region for several days, dropping a record 40-52 inches of rainfall making it difficult to work in the flooded regions where storm surge water was still in place. Line workers from Sturgeon Electric were released to respond to the damage in Texas and southwest Louisiana. Crews rented small boats and canoes to cross storm water to get to designated work locations and were focused on restoring the public’s power as quickly and safely as possible.
