Rough Surf in Galveston as Tropical Storm Nicholas Nears

Tropical Storm Nicholas was forecast to bring a “life-threatening” storm surge to parts of southeastern Texas on Monday, September 13, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

Video taken by Justin Aaron Kelm in Galveston Monday afternoon shows rough surf, which Kelm said left him “completely soaked.”

The National Weather Service said 8 to 16 inches of rain would fall over parts of southeastern Texas, but warned that “amounts greater than 20 inches” were possible. Credit: Justin Aaron Kelm via Storyful
