The beach is currenty unaccessable. The first access point after the road ends is now a 4-5 foot deep washout in the pavement, blocking any further access. Several spots in the pavement have minor washout approaching the beach.

Sabine Pass is bad. They appear to be sheltering in the high school. Those folks got hit really hard down there. Really hard... wow... Sea Rim is a set of stairs and a bathroom, everything else was wiped clean.

The refuge headquarters is standing but was gutted. Only a roof and some walls left.

I'll upload some pics tomorrow, but I have none of the town of Sabine Pass. I cound't do it... some houses completely gone. All look very bad.

what a storm... :(

Thanks for the update. I usually fish this beach every weekend. Can you walk to the beach or is it also impassable?
maybe? It's really bad and there is a baracade on 87 blocking passage. I would wait a few weeks at least for the beach. There were people fishing the causway on the side of the road.

Check out this collection of satellite pictures of Pleasure Island.
It's really wasted. Almost all boats in the marina are piled up at mid-island,
stacked like pogies. They almost made it into the ICW where they would
have all been sunk near downtown Port Arthur, blocking ship traffic.
The drawbridge marina on Pleasure Island is just a blank spot. The old Salt Club building, home of many tournaments, is half caved-in.

here are the pics...
FishinHippie, Thank You for the pics! It didn't look that bad from the NOAA Sat. pictures. sad3sm

From the article that I posted:

Meanwhile, state transportation officials continue to assess the damage and work on a plan to determine how and when to make repairs.

Much of SH 87 between Sabine Pass and High Island has been closed since 1989 after a hurricane significantly damaged the roadway. In the past 19 years, storms have washed portions of the highway into the Gulf of Mexico. TxDOT says efforts to rebuild the original 17 miles of washed out highway could cost many millions of dollars and would need federal approval.
Paraphrase; 19 years, continued assement, $$$ = they don't give a rat's ***! :mad:

I heard that one of the "new" passes has made the refuge look like a small bay. Alan Ritter stated that is looked alot like Rockport from the air. Anyone have a sat pic that they can post?
