Imagine if Hurricane Ike had been a direct hit to the Houston-Galveston region.

History and science confirm that a “direct-hit” threat from a hurricane is not a matter of if, but when it will occur. In 2008, Hurricane Ike caused loss of life and more than $35 billion in property and environmental damage (to date) … a devastating blow to the Houston-Galveston region, even without it being a direct hit. In our current, unprotected state, the region, the national economy and homeland security will suffer a devastating blow.

Join us in bringing to life a coastal barrier system for storm surge protection that protects and saves the entire Houston-Galveston region – from Galveston Island north to downtown Houston and outward to Harris, Galveston, Chambers and Brazoria Counties.

It's time to stop the surge at the coast.

...It's a start...
