One year ago on July 23rd, Dolly pounded the Valley, hitting South Padre Island first, then continuing her destructive path across the Valley.
For hours the strong category 1 storm churned above South Padre Island with the strom hitting the Raddison Hotel known now as The Isla Grand. For those who chose to stay on South Padre Island, this is what they saw and experienced.
