Looking at Hurricane Alex from Brownsville, Texas

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Hurricane Alex is expected to hit land in the next 24 hours, and we've been monitoring the situation all morning. Earlier this morning, we checked in with a seafood wholesaler in Louisiana, and now we turn our focus to Texas, where everything's bigger, even the winds. 110 mph winds are ripping through Brownsville, Texas, sending some residents fleeing while others prepare storm shelters. We speak with Brownsville Mayor Pat Ahumada, who is confident his town will weather the storm.
