Hurricane IKE - GALVESTON Put SEATBELTS On
Conhecida entre 1800 e 1900 como a New York do Texas, Galveston é uma 'ilha' à margem do Caribe americano, no fundo do Golfo do México. Localizada a leste da belísima Corpus Christi, tem cerca de 60 mil habitantes. Esta pérola histórica parece escolhida pelo Furacão Ike para receber como prêmio 200km/h de ventos, ondas e enchentes. A cidade portuária com intenso movimento de carga guarda preciosidades como Harbour House at Pier 21 (Harbor HousePier 21 Galveston, Texas 775501-800-874-3721(409) 763-3321 - E-mail: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org), Hotel Galvez (2024 Seawall Boulevard, Galveston Island, Texas Reservations: (800)WYNDHAMDirect: (409)765-7721 - E-mail: Galvez@galveston.com) e Tremont House - A Wyndham Historic Hotel (2300 Ship's Mechanic RowGalveston, Texas 77550phone: 409/763.0300800-WYNDHAMgroup sales: 409/763.0300fax: 409/763.1539 - E-mail: email@example.com ) que espero fiquem abertos e funcionando com toda a equipe bem e saudável.
