Much like Cancun two years ago, South Padre Island has been visted by "Mother Nature." Damage appears to be light, some roofs were blown off and windows were smashed due to the wind.
The only specific damage that we have seen reported are: Sign Damage to the Bahia Mar Resort and the roof of the Palmetto Inn.
Unlike Cancun two years ago, the damage to Padre looks pretty light. We will check with the mayor's office after they have time to recover, but it should not effect 2009 Spring Break activities.
For those of you who have been to Padre Island during Spring Break, you are famililar with the causeway to the beach.
Power to the island was also out for several hours.
