Damage in Downtown Houston
September 13, 2008


It’s something you almost have to see in person to believe it’s real, but 2 on the Beat is DISCOURAGING anyone from venturing downtown to look at the damage.

Hurricane Ike’s wind assault shattered dozens of windows at the Chase Center and Chase Tower.

One witness told me that he first noticed a “wind tunnel downtown,  heard what sounded like an explosion, and then saw shattered glass, computers and furniture raining down onto the street below.”

No one is saying that a tornado ripped through downtown Houston, but based on the amount of damage it looks like a significant weather event swept through.

Something you almost have to see to believe.
