Hurricane Nicholas made landfall in Texas early on September 14, bringing with it a “dangerous surge”.

This footage by Chad Casey was shot in Matagorda on September 13 shortly before Nicholas made landfall and shows flooded streets in the coastal community.

The National Weather Service (NWS) warned the hurricane could cause “life-threatening flash and urban flooding” along the Texas and Louisiana coasts.
