STORM CLOSES FM2100 IN HUFFMAN-POSSIBLY FOR DAYS

Intense winds associated with a small storm came through Huffman close to 5:00 Sunday evening. Extensive damage was brought to the area. With power poles snapped like toothpicks on FM 2100 just south of FM 1960 to Indian Shores. Huge power lines lay scattered on the road. Traffic must divert through the back roads. Even the back roads had damage. On Peters Road a huge oak tree is uprooted and being supported by a barbed wire fence and a power line. Without that it would be across the road. Businesses closed early without power. Traffic was bottlenecked with no signals operational. Center Point Energy was on the scene calling out for additional resources. A contract utility company was just arriving on the scene for a long night of work.

Star Café which is on FM 2100 suffered a loss of the roof. In addition the old windmill collapsed and windows were blown out , frame and all. A vent from the roof slid down landing on a pickup in the parking lot. One employee said he watched it come in, just a lot of wind. The the roof, the awnings, trash cans and patio tables.

A tree landed on a car in Indian Shores and several homes had roof damage.

Centerpoint Energy will work through the night but doesn’t expect FM 2100 to reopen for awhile.

Huffman Fire Department, Harris County Sheriff’s Office and Harris County Precinct 3 Constables Office handled traffic control through the area.

Officials warn many New Caney, Porter and East Montgomery County workers who work at the plants and use FM 2100 South of 1960 through Crosby need to use another road in the morning.
