Hurricane Ike on Lake Conroe

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Conroe - Lake Conroe

Ike has come and gone, now it's time to sit and wait. I am very concerned with our neighbors south of us in Galveston, Clear Lake and Houston. I hope they all stay safe and dry. Although, some of us have experienced damage to our homes in one way or another, thankfully, we do not feel the drastic affects here in The Woodlands, Lake Conroe and North Houston areas as our neighbors do. The city of Conroe has been very helpful in cleaning up our streets. Branches and trees had were picked up by the city early Saturday and everyone has been quick to respond to our needs in our area. Power is not up yet, but thankfully we are not powered by Houston's large, Centerpoint Energy. Our power company is Entergy, and is located here in Conroe. They power only 350,000 residents in and around The Woodlands, Magnolia, Montgomery and Conroe, so power is expected to be on much sooner than others. Although the 20,000 acre Lake Conroe is in our backyard, we are on higher ground than other parts of the Houston area and are fortunately not seeing flooding or standing water. Magnolia TX is a little lower to sea level and may experience some standing water, however, no boats are needed here to get to their homes. I will keep you updated on what is happening here in the Montgomery County for those of you outside the area.

Be safe...my prayers are with you all!
