On August 25th, 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit Port Aransas and the shores of Mustang Island, leaving significant destruction in its path.
Port Aransas has sustained huge losses to our beautiful beach community. However, the people who live and work here are incredibly resilient and are rebuilding, ensuring that Port A will come back better than ever in 2018.
Many visitors to our website have asked how they can help, even when they don’t live in the area. The Port Aransas area is still in need of donations to assist local residents with day-to-day living and rebuilding expenses that insurance may not cover. Please consider donating $25, $50, $100… Every dollar is so appreciated by those living in Port A as they begin rebuilding their homes and their lives post-Harvey.
