Well I take back having said that this storm will not be a problem. My apartment still does not have electricity and I’ve lived at the office for the last 3 days. Houston has lots of damage. WEDGE tower which houses DC1 and our offices (including mine) had wind damage and lost many windows, but none on our floors!
Our primary data center and office at which we stayed (DC2) sustained no damage at all! We only lost power from our primary grid and backup power held until we were switched over to the other grid! We still have AC, food, water and Internet!
There is also plenty of damage to Houston itself. Yesterday morning I drove from downtown Houston to the Westchase District of Houston and found destruction everywhere along the way. Most stop lights are dead and even physically damaged. Light poles are facing the wrong way. Street signs have been turned around. Many roads are still flooded, but my little Camaro heroically made it through!
There are many more photos in my gallery!
