Port Arthur cleans up after Harvey amid criticism of preparations, drainage

Everywhere you look in Port Arthur you see mountains of things that were once pieces of people’s lives. Beds they slept on, couches they sat on…maybe to watch TV. Pianos they played that are now waterlogged and…silent. For some Port Arthur residents, this was their first day back after fleeing their homes. What they saw was as depressing as what they had been through.Harvey wasn’t discriminating. Besides creating catastrophic conditions and raising the misery factor for people from all walks of life the storm had some people saying the city hadn’t done enough to prepare people for the storm.
