Recovery Efforts Underway Following Hurricane Harvey.
Hurricane Harvey barreled into Texas on August 25. It was a Category 4 hurricane, with winds exceeding 130 miles per hour in some places. Stalling over the Texas Gulf Coast, and eventually lingering as a tropical storm, Harvey dropped between 40 and 52 inches of rain in southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana. Mobilizing into action, the Coast Guard, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and National Guard units from five states—as well as other military branches—were called on to assist those affected by the storm. It’s nice to know that when the water rises, the brave men and women of our country’s military have our backs.
Now, with Hurricane Irma, one of the strongest storms ever recorded in the Atlantic, thrashing the Caribbean on a collision course with Florida, many predict it could surpass the damage done by Harvey. Our military may soon be called into action once again.
The Nordhavn Yachts 59 Coastal Pilot was filled with capacity crowds during her east coast debut at the Newport International Boat Show. That attention, we learned, was well deserved.
