2 on the Beat is reporting from just north of the Galveston Island causeway this morning, watching as residents rush home.
They are anxious and determined to see their homes and businesses. Many say they want to assess the damage and try to salvage personal possessions.
The DPS shutdown the last roadblock just before six a.m., allowing residents and visitors to drive through without much delay.
Meanwhile, closer to Tiki Island where I am standing, the damage is still visable.
A boat and other debris that washed up during Hurricane are still sitting by the side of the freeway.
