From Corpus Christi to Houston, Texas (CNN)It begins with a couple of
shingles in the road, a power line down here or there. The caravan of
utility workers is a sign that things are getting worse. And then, at the
Pioneer Beach Resort in Port Aransas it becomes clear that Hurricane
Harvey came through with a vengeance.

.

RVs are lying on their sides, windows blown out. Debris is everywhere. Any
trailer that wasn't moved before the storm was destroyed, says Buddy
Seeds, an owner there.

.

Riding a golf cart through the park, he shows a newly built rental cabin
that's been lifted off its foundation and flung at least 300 yards away.
"That one floated all the way to the dunes," he says, pointing at the
unit. The deck is all that remains. Mangled metal and snapped wood are
strewn across the park, which is busy again, but with people hauling away
ruined homes, or checking what can be saved. One man hangs sopping wet
clothes on a line next to his damaged home. He hopes they are salvageable.

.

Seeds and other owners say the storm's massive power caught them by
surprise. About 4 feet of storm surge flooded the area from the nearby
bay, flinging every trailer onto its side.

.

"The wind is what started the ball rolling ... and then the water finished
them off," Seeds says.

.

A week after Hurricane Harvey slammed into the coast near Corpus Christi,
Texas, and then dumped foot after foot of rain on Houston and its
neighbors, we crisscrossed the 200 miles between the two cities to witness
what the storm had left behind.

.

For some communities, it was the wind that did the damage. For others, it
was the flooding from the massive rains. And for some, who had seemed to
dodge both those bullets, it was a surprise late attack from rivers
overflowing with the floodwaters heading south from Houston trying to find
their way to the Gulf of Mexico.
