    Reverse Alert is a free tool for anyone to use to stay in the know during emergencies.   And yet, a KRIS 6 News investigation finds the city issued just one Reverse Alert the day Hurricane Harvey made landfall, last month. And, when it went out, the alert contained critical information that was almost four hours old. So, if not Reverse Alert, how did the city communicate with residents as Harvey churned across the Gulf on its way to becoming a Category 4 hurricane? We asked.

A group of blockhouses on 10th Street in Port Aransas survived 140 mph winds during Harvey without a scratch while other homes nearby, are now in shambles. But, building a bunker isn't necessarily the answer.
