HOUSTON — Nicholas made landfall as a hurricane near Sargent, Texas, early Tuesday morning. Though not as big as a rainmaker as we anticipated, the storm still caused quite a bit of damage to coastal communities and east Harris County.

The storm left more than half a million people without power, but CenterPoint crews are working to restore it in many areas. It may take a few days for the hardest-hit places.

These school districts are opting to remain closed for the safety of their students and staff.

  • Angleton ISD (closed Thursday)
  • Brazosport ISD (closed Thursday and Friday)
  • Columbia-Brazoria ISD (closed Thursday and Friday)
  • Sweeny ISD (closed Thursday and Friday)

This page will be updated throughout the day as we hear from more school districts on their reopening plans.
