Though safe, many in Port Arthur remain in need

For those stuck in the Port Arthur floods, there is little to do but wait.

While hundreds remain stranded on rooftops and in homes, hundreds more wait in hotels.

Some, fearing the worst on Tuesday, planned ahead and booked rooms on higher ground. However, at the Baymont Inn and Suites on Highway 73, safety is little more than an island of strangers surrounded by several feet of floodwater stretching out as far as the eye can see.
