Transcript for Pregnant woman stays in eye of Hurricane Harvey to have scheduled C-section
Let's turn now to ABC's Matt Gutman. In fact, he was in rockport ahead of the storm as people were evacuate that city and he joins us now from Corpus Christi which is still dealing with some wind and rain this morning, Matt. Reporter: You think about one telephone line. Not that surprising. That's why we went over to rockport. About 30 miles north of where we are right now. Very low. Probably only a couple feet above sea level. That's why we went there. We knew, a, it would be right in the bull's-eye of the storm, and, B, the storm surge would likely submerge that town and pummeled unfortunately. Now we drove through it. Boarded up houses. Nobody on the street. But we stopped some police officers there and we heard something very disconcerting. They said even though the town was under mandatory evacuation, only about 60% of the population left. Meaning that there are a lot of people still in that town and that's probably why you hear the chief talking about all those calls for help. Now, I want to give you an idea of why folks aren't going out. Why first responders aren't going out to try to help these people. Right now immediately in the night, I mean, this tree snapped off. It's in the middle of the street behind me. All sorts of pieces of metal. I don't know if you can see this but look at this thing. You don't want first responders driving over this. They could get themselves hurt or in trouble. Now, all across town here in Corpus Christi, we see debris. There is a significant amount of damage, I'm going to put these down. 200,000 people just in this one area without power. Obviously up the coast it's going to be much, much worse. There's going to be a very amount of damage. Talk about numbers but there's also a very human toll here and yesterday I got to speak with Danielle weeks about to give birth. On Tuesday, which is why she couldn't evacuate her home. She had to come to a hole tell here. You have to hear her story. Does it make you nervous seeing what's going on outside your window? Yes, very nervous. What about your home? We actually live in an rv. So we had to leave it on the island so we're pretty worried that we won't have a home to go back to. I'm so sorry. The saddest part is his family just moved back here to Texas a month ago from Colorado. They obviously ask themselves why they did that. Just absolutely distraught. Dan and Amy. So many stories of personal struggle throughout the storm
