Bad weather rolls through By MAGGIE SIEGER The Daily NBWS GALVESTON—A loss of power during Tuesdays storm temporarily disrupted operations at the National Weather Service office in Galveston, knocking out radar and preventing meteorologists from collecting data. Electricity was restored after about 30 minutes, a weather service spokesman said. The rest of the county suffered similar temporary disruptions Tuesday in both power and traffic flow as about 3 inches of rain pelted Galveston County. The usual streets flooded in Galveston, and street crews were working overtime to unclog drains, said Gary Stone, director of public works. The rain is expected to last throughout today, with chances of storms decreasing Thursday and Friday, said a weather service spokeswoman in the League City office. More rain is forecast for the weekend, however, from a front now moving across the state from West Texas, she added. Rain and wind put a halt to efforts to remove fuel from aboard the OMI Charger, the tanker that exploded Saturday and is now partially sunk off the ship channel. The vessel was carrying 8,700 barrels — about 365,000 gallons — of fuel oil at the time of the explosion. The Accu-Weather® forecast for noon, Wednesday, Oct. 13.
