When Tropical Storm Edouard threatened Galveston, the Grand 1894 Opera Househad to cancelTuna Does Vegas
With Hurricane Ike now looming in the Gulf, the Opera House has announced it's canceling Saturday night's performance by Steve Tyrell, the jazzy, Texas-born singer.
So in terms of losses incurred, Ike has already far outpaced Edouard at this point in their respective development.
Angleton, Bay City and Wharton ISDs have also all announced they're closed as of tomorrow; Clear Creek schools are canceled Friday.
