About Hurricane Hanna
After several days of uncertainty, Hurricane Hanna made landfall as a Category 1 on July 25, 2020, hitting Padre Island the hardest. After landfall, the storm traveled southwest and weakened rapidly due to interaction with mountainous terrain and by July 26 had weakened into a tropical storm as it passed into Mexico.
Corpus Christi, Port Mansfield and many other coastal towns also experienced storm surge flooding to residential and commercial buildings from the hurricane.
Hurricane Hanna was the first hurricane and the fourth U.S. landfalling storm of the 2020 North Atlantic hurricane season.
The latest reports have stated that insured losses from Hurricane Hanna will reach close to $350 million.
High wind speeds left more than 200,000 customers without power in South Texas, while low to moderate levels of wind damage were sustained throughout the Rio Grande Valley. Due to the high wind speeds, damage to signage and lightweight structures were relatively common. Additionally, damage to roofs and siding as well as several instances of structural damage have all been reported.
Downed power lines and trees caused road closures across Southern Texas. As of 1 p.m on Monday, July 27th, the American Electric Power Texas, one of the state’s largest electric providers, reported more than 58,000 power outages in Corpus Christi, Laredo and the Rio Grande Valley alone.
