JPMorganChase Tower, Other Skyscrapers Damaged in Houston

The streets below are littered with computers, post-it notes, confidential files and pieces furniture.

Video here.

In Galveston, the damage is not as bad as feared (11-foot storm surge against a 17-foot seawall). Maximum reported storm surge anywhere along the cost is 13-1/2 feet. Looks like we got off lucky; maybe the refineries will start up soon and gasoline prices will come on down.

So how come the reincarnetion of Dwight D. Eisenhower didn't leave the Houston oil infrastructure totally wrecked? Who knows???
