Ticka I'm not thinking we'll get a major cane this year if we go by history.
Houston has never been hit with 2 major canes back to back - so now that i say that LOL
Wont rule out a TS though - and yes It Only Takes One and I'm Ms. Over prepared anyway :-)

Look at Page 2 of the May thread. Big bullseye of wetness over Texas from the CPC. It verified so far for the Hill Country areas but not for us...

The Upper Texas coast and Houston did not get hit by a land falling hurricane last year. Harvey made landfall on the middle Texas coast near Aransas Pass. So even though we got the flood after landfall, climatologically, we did not record a hit.

It doesn’t matter anyway. The atmosphere doesn’t have a memory. Four hurricanes hit Florida in 2005 (a first). There is no such thing as ‘safety’ or ‘immunity’ because of what happened last year.

Major hurricanes have hit back to back in Southeast Texas. Try 1880s and 1940s.

1886 Indianola Hurricane
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1886_Indianola_hurricane

Texas-Louisiana Hurricane of 1886
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1886_Atla ... ricane_Ten

1941 Texas hurricane
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1941_Texas_hurricane

1942 Matagorda hurricane
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1942_Matagorda_hurricane

They were initially not classified as major hurricanes until recently. Get this, two hurricanes hit Southeast Texas a week apart in 1942.

Luck of the draw. IF El Nino kicks in we may see more shear, reducing TS severity and development. We'll see.
