ROCKPORT, TX (AP) – A Texas judge says there is one confirmed death from Harvey in the coastal city of Rockport.
The Austin American-Statesman reported Saturday that Aransas County Judge C.H. “Burt” Mills Jr. also says 12 to 14 people were injured by Harvey, which came ashore Friday night as a Category 4 hurricane but has since been downgraded to a tropical storm.
Harvey delivered a direct blow to Rockport, a city of about 10,000 people.
City leaders said at a news conference that their coastal community has been turned into a debris field and that the storm damaged a school, the library and other public buildings.
