Storm at Texas City, Tex.

Description:

A residential area is shown with scattered debris in the foreground. On the left is a large pile of debris from a destroyed wooden structure. Beyond that is a one story house leaning precariously to the right, braced up at the right rear corner by a board wedged in between the roof and the ground at a sharp angle. Two people are sitting on the porch of the house holding children on their laps. An animal, probably a dog, is standing to the right of the house. Two other buildings are visible behind and on the right of the damaged house, with one other building on the left. Wooden boards in the foreground have been placed as walkways over watery areas.
