HURRICANE KILLS 2 IN TEXAS STORM, HIGH TIDES COMBINE TO FLOOD COASTAL AREA JERRY SLAMS GULF COAST HARD.(Main)

Albany Times Union (Albany, NY) October 16, 1989 Byline: Associated Press Hurricane Jerry roared into the Texas coast Sunday, tossing cars and ripping down power lines, trees and neon signs in this island city. The storm also spun off tornadoes that inflicted damage along the Gulf Coast.

Jerry’s fury combined with the highest tides of the year to flood coastal areas as thousands of people, mostly in Louisiana, fled to higher ground.

The center of the hurricane moved ashore on the west end of Galveston Island about 7:25 p.m., with sustained winds of 75 mph and gusts up to 100 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center in Coral Gables, Fla. It was moving north- northeast at 10 mph.

Jerry was considered a category 1 hurricane, the least severe possible. Hurricane Hugo, which devastated Charleston and other parts of South Carolina last month, was a category 4. go to web site category 1 hurricane

“A lot of people take a Category 1 hurricane lightly, but this can spur tornadoes and a lot of damage,” said Galveston City Manager Doug Matthews, who ordered an 11 p.m. curfew. “This is one mean, mean fellow.” In Galveston, a 32-mile long barrier island connected to the mainland by a causeway, officials reported scattered power failures, street flooding and a roof torn off a building. There were no reports of injuries.

The city of 62,000 was the site of one of the worst hurricanes in U.S. history, a storm that killed an estimated 6,000 people in 1900. Galveston Island is about 50 miles south of Houston.

As Jerry struck, heavy rains and rising tides moved over the upper Texas coast and were expected to increase over the southwest Louisiana coast, the National Weather Service said.

The hurricane center said the area would receive 4 to 8 inches of rain.

Jerry’s hurricane-strength winds extended 25 miles east of the eye and 15 miles west. That was about 10 times weaker than Hugo, which packed hurricane force winds extending 100 miles out from its center, “It’s a very small hurricane. I would not expect much damage from it,” said Bob Sheets, director of the National Hurricane Center.

“Category 4 is a major disaster and Jerry is a bad day,” said Jerry Jarrell, deputy director of the center. go to site category 1 hurricane

Jerry strengthened from a tropical storm to a hurricane 110 miles off Galveston Island at 1 p.m. when its sustained wind hit 75 mph, or 1 mph above the threshold, according to the National Hurricane Center. During the afternoon, the storm reached 85 mph sustained wind and swung onto a northerly course toward Galveston, the hurricane center said.

The storm surge caused by a combination of Jerry and high tides was not expected to be over eight feet, he said. In comparison, the storm surge in the Charleston, S.C., area from Hugo was up to 20 feet.

Hurricane warnings were posted from Freeport, Texas, to Intracoastal City, La. Tornado watches were issued for southwestern Louisiana and southeastern Texas.

A tornado hit downtown Orange, near the Louisiana border, and several homes and businesses were damaged, police officials said. There were no immediate reports of injuries, police dispatcher Rachel Timaeus said.

Earlier, a funnel cloud was reported near New Orleans.

Heavy rains pounded the area, and the hurricane’s winds shook trees, parked cars and light poles. There were a few motorists on the road as Jerry struck, and even a few hurricane sightseers on the seawall.

There were numerous reports of power outages in Galveston and there was some street flooding, officials said. Several cars were tossed onto sidewals and there was a report of one washing over the seawall, but officials did not know if anyone was inside. The wind also blew out the windows of a police car, but the officer was not injured.
