CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A helicopter tour is providing an aerial view of the damaged left behind by Hurricane Hanna.

The view from the air showed missing planks and sections of railing at Bob Hall Pier and damage to the surface of the parking lot there.

“I saw on the news (about) Bob Hall Pier and all of that," Corpus Christi visitor Felipe Cruz said. "That was pretty damaging what it did.”

The marina at the Marina Del Sol condominium complex is also badly damaged. Aerial video showed a mixture of free-floating boats and wood pressed against a retaining wall.

In Packery Channel, the helicopter crew spotted a half sunken boat that was leaking something into the water.

The flood-prone North Beach area had lots of standing water in streets and in fields as viewed from the air.

So far, there are no reports of any injuries or deaths from Hurricane Hanna.

"Just some branches off the trees," Corpus Christi resident Shelia Rogers said of the damage at her house. "We were very fortunate. We didn’t have any flooding. So I think Corpus is very fortunate.”
