So, Hurricane Beryl decided to drop by Matagorda, Texas early Monday morning.

The aftermath?

Over 2.6 million people in the Houston area are living in the dark.

And sadly, at least two lives have been lost.

A second US death related to Beryl, which has been confirmed by the authorities.

A tree fell on a home in the Houston suburb of Bammel, hitting a 74-year-old woman.

The first death that occurred was nearly identical; a tree fell on 53-year-old man’s house, pining him under the debris.

She was declared dead at the scene.

Is that a road or a river?

The Gateway Pundit reports:

Hurricane Beryl made landfall in Matagorda, Texas as a category 1 storm early Monday morning.

More than 2.6 million people are without power in the surrounding Houston area. At least two people are dead.

“Authorities in Texas have confirmed a second US death related to Beryl, which is now a tropical storm as it barrels across Texas. Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said a tree fell on a home, striking a 74-year-old woman in the Houston suburb of Bammel. She was pronounced dead at the scene,” Accuweather reported.

“Earlier Monday morning, Gonzalez reported that a 53-year-old man was killed in the Houston suburb of Humble when a tree fell on his house, trapping him beneath the debris. The man was riding out Hurricane Beryl with his family. His wife and children were unharmed,” Accuweather said.

Houston Mayor John Whitmire said parts of the city are under 10 inches of water during a presser on Monday.

“Shelter in place. Stay off the roads,” said Houston mayor John Whitmire. “If we look out for each other, we will come out of this as safely as possible.”

Here’s my favorite weather man.

No idea what he’s driving around in, but it looks like he’s ready for any storm in that thing.

Fox 4 DKFW reported:

Beryl made landfall at 3:50 on Monday morning as a Category 1 hurricane near Matagorda, Texas, about 100 miles southwest of Houston, with maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour.

At 10 a.m., the storm was dropped to a Tropical Storm, but is still lashing the Gulf Coast.

The storm is bringing high winds and heavy rains. More than 2.1 million customers are without power in the Houston area, according to CenterPoint Energy.

Crews have also responded to several high water rescues in the area.

This baseball field was submerged!

Rand Paul survived the hurricane and shared a photo on X:

And what better way to celebrate surviving a hurricane, than by having a hurricane cake.

I never knew these existed.
