Jetty Debris

Volunteers help with clean-up and repairs on November 16, 2017, at Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve in Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

On November 16, 2017, volunteers at Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve in Texas cleaned up debris washed between the rocks in a jetty following Hurricane Harvey. The jetty shown here lines Aransas Pass, where oil tankers pass through to Corpus Christi Bay. The damage to the pier in the background was not caused by wind. It sustained damage from an oil tanker that was beached during the hurricane and broke free after the storm passed. The crew is cleaning up debris that washed between the rocks in the jetty during Harvey.
