Strongest Winds in Houston During Hurricane Beryl

Strongest Winds in Houston During Hurricane Beryl

Early Monday morning, Category 1 Hurricane Beryl, later downgraded to a tropical storm, made landfall in the Houston area.

Although the storm passed quickly, the damage was extensive. Roads remained dangerous due to flooding and downed power lines. Nearly 2 million customers in the Houston area were left without power, and several died in storm-related deaths throughout the region.

High winds played a significant role in the damage, with some areas seeing wind gusts as high as 107 mph. According to the National Weather Service, wind gusts at these speeds can cause significant damage to homes, buildings and trees, many of which were seen after Tropical Storm Beryl.

Houston Landing has compiled a searchable database showing the strongest wind gusts in the Houston area during Tropical Storm Beryl.

If strong wind gusts in your area have caused power lines to fall, stay 35 feet away at all times, as any downed power line is considered active.

If you encounter fallen trees or debris, call the city at 311 or 713-837-0311 to report fallen trees or branches blocking roads. For help repairing storm damage to your property, such as tarping roofs, trimming fallen trees or mitigating mold, call CrowdSource Rescue’s Home Cleanup Hotline at 979-217-3791 for free assistance.
