Constable blames impact of Hurricane Harvey for slow Spring Break: 'No place for them to stay'

PORT ARANSAS, Texas — Spring break 2020 is off to a slow start in Port Aransas.

Precinct 4 Constable Robert Sherwood tells us it's been slow since the weekend and so far the crowds haven't been all that large.

He expects that to change this weekend when more Spring Breakers are due to arrive.

Sherwood says it doesn't have anything to do fears about coronavirus. He blames it on the lingering impacts of Hurricane Harvey.

"The biggest problem with crowds, I believe here in Port Aransas, is the fact that there's no place for them to stay," Constable Robert Sherwood said. "Because we're still pretty much damaged from the storm so we had a limited amount of accommodations but we are getting some people."
