Port Aransas Business Owners Take Stock After Harvey

Aug 31, 2017

The sounds of generators and chainsaws are now as much a part of the City of Port Aransas as sea gulls.

The resort town on the northern end of Mustang Island has no power or running water. City officials are allowing residents to return and clean up during daylight hours, but you must either leave or shelter in place overnight.

Residents and business owners at the Port A RV Resort began the cleanup after Hurricane Harvey this week. Duke Earwood, manager of the RV park, and Paul Underwood, park resident and owner of the nearby Slice of Chicago pizzeria, were among those picking up the pieces Tuesday.

Here are their stories:
