PORT ARANSAS (Kiii News) — As we approach one year after Hurricane Harvey, the post storm picture on the island is becoming clearer. One piece of good news is that the full recovery process that was supposed to take five years in Port Aransas is moving much faster than expected.

While the high rise buildings are mostly still uninhabitable, the things that bring people to Port Aransas are in place and the business that are open report that things are close to a regular tourist season.

Planners believe that while there will be changes in the town once the rebuilding process is finished, at its core, Port Aransas will still be Port Aransas.
