Local Students Document Hurricane Ike’s Aftermath

Hurricane Ike tore through the Texas coast last September, completely devastating many families and leaving OneSeventeen Media’s Houston headquarters with minor damage, but without power for many days.  (The blown over back fence pictured below).


Neighboring Galveston Island endure the brunt of the storm as Ike overtook the island and left total destruction in his wake.  While the community continues to rebuild seven months later, local students at Ball High School have made what looks to be an incredible film about the experience called Ike: A Documentary.  

We’re all looking forward to an opportunity to see the film ourselves, and we applaud these students for opening themselves up and telling the stories of their community’s strength and sorrow through Ike’s aftermath.
