Tropical Storm Nicholas
More than half-a-million people are without power and the Deep South is hunkering down as Tropical Storm Nicholas moves eastward. Nicholas was downgraded after making landfall in Texas as a Category One hurricane. Heavy rainfall and thunderstorms were already battering the state before the storm struck near Sargent Beach, just an hour south of Houston, early Tuesday morning.
