Transcript for Texas towns brace for 2nd impact from Harvey
Good to see. We head to port aransas, Texas. They got hit hard by Harvey when it came ashore now bracing for another hit and Matt Gutman is there. Reporter: And good morning, George. I'll walk you through what is literally a path of destruction. This was an rv park. That storm lifting up these mobile homes, rattling them, gutting them, slamming them back down on top of each other and in the debris we find things like, you know, a family bible. Barbecue sauce, a microwave all dumped on each other. Now, the mayor says there's 100% damage here and some of the things you see here make your brain skip a beat. A boat in the middle of the road. The contents of this house also absolutely gutted and it's like this up and down for so many of these coastal communities here. There you go. Reporter: With alarms still blaring, overnight first responders kicking in doors. It's the desperate dash to rescue those still trapped in rockport. Harvey slammed into the Texas coast late Friday as a cat 4 chewing up whole towns. These storm chasers yelping as a mass of debris clips them and in the light of day, the power of 130-mile-per-hour winds is laid bare, obliterating that entire block, check out this house. Lifted up off its foundation, turned 90 degrees, slammed back down on the ground but what's most stunning is the scope of it all. 300,000 still without power here on the coast. A little bit here and it's not going to be easy. Reporter: Among the thousands displaced the weeks family, Danielle is scheduled for a c-section tomorrow. They fled their home in port aransas to Corpus Christi and sat through the storm. What about your home? We're pretty worried that we won't have a home to go back to. Reporter: On Saturday they asked us to join them to see if their home survived. We're hoping for the best. Reporter: But a police checkpoint blocked residents from going back. So we're going to go check this out for you. You're okay with that. Yes. Reporter: So we drove in, threading through the destruction. Every building has a little bit. Reporter: We found the weeks mobile home part. You can tell why there was a mandatory evacuation order in this town. Anybody who had been in this mobile home park would likely not have survived. And then we found their home. It was flipped over and gutted. Overnight as they asked we showed them what's left. That's the baby's blanket that I was making for her. Reporter: It is so heartbreaking what that family went through and I just want to give you a sense of how high the water was here. That sea grass going all the way up to the second story of the house. That's the storm surge we've been talking about and complicating the recovery here which could take months even a year is the fact that that storm is whipping back around punishing these communities for a second time and another major factory. No comms here, no cell phone, no internet. The only way to communicate with the outside world is either via satellite or literally driving 20 miles out of here. What a zone that is. Okay, Matt Gutman, thanks very much. Further evidence of why
