Many observing stations in South Texas with equipment measuring wind speeds were disabled before they could record the highest wind speeds. Thus, some of the observed wind speeds tallied over South Texas may be underestimated, especially over areas near the coast and close to the eyewall of Harvey. The highest measured peak 1-second wind gust was 145 mph at 8 meters AGL (152 mph at 10 m AGL) recorded at the Aransas County Airport in Rockport by the Center for Severe Weather Research. The next highest measured wind gust was 140 mph at 10 m AGL recorded at the Aransas County Airport in Rockport by the University of Florida's Florida Coastal Monitoring Program (FCMP). A peak wind gust of 133 mph was also reported 2 miles ENE of Port Aransas at approximately 13 meters AGL (127 mph at 10 m AGL). A Texas Tech mobile \"StickNet\" platform located just southeast of Aransas Pass, measured 108 mph wind gust at 2.5 m AGL (135 mph at 10 m AGL).
This presentation shows images for 25 locations on google maps where you can walk around and explore and includes a location title for each so that you can visit yourself. If you find you need some tips for traveling more easily on these virtual field trips, view my travel tips video. Virtual field trips can help your students practice observing closely and noting details, can motivate them to find more information through their own research, can give them authentic material to compare and contrast, can build their background knowledge, and can give them shared experiences to discuss and to write about. This can lead to more careful analysis of graphics in nonfiction and on tests, and it can also lead to more detailed and descriptive speaking and writing.
