Quotes

"There are nearly 140,000 miles of railroad in the United States, while the crude oiloil pipeline system is just 57,000 miles long, according to federal data. For a company with crude to transport, railroads can be the simpler solution if a link to a pipeline is not already in place, said Sandy Fielden, the director of energy analytics for RBN Energy , a consulting firm"  writes Texas Tribune reporter, Aman Batheja
"Our efforts are to be a part of the conversation and aware of what's being said about our island" Galveston Spokeswoman Elizabeth Rogers said
"We'll never get back what we lost," said Lance Robinson, upper coast regional director of TPWD's coastal fisheries division. "Some of the reefs are so heavily buried with sediment - a foot or more deep - that costs (of digging them out) are too prohibitive."
...  "We also have evacuation zones that will tell you your vulnerability now, before the season, before a hurricane even forms," says Rhome.  "It's imperative that people look up their zone now, before the season, to understand their overall risk."   The new maps and evacuation zones are available at hurricanes.gov
