HOUSTON – The day after Hurricane Beryl went through the Houston area, most people had one thing on their minds: Damage control.

It’s time to survey and assess what the storm actually did to homes, schools, and other public buildings around the city of Houston.

On Tuesday, our SKY2 chopper was able to lift off and give us an aerial view of some of the hardest-hit areas around town.

We saw multiple downed trees, down power lines everywhere, and other structural damage but the damage we saw to the roof at NRG Stadium stopped us in our tracks.

The stadium, most commonly known for hosting the Houston Texans games and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, was seen with multiple missing panels from its retractable roof.

At this time, there is no word on plans to cancel any upcoming events like the Houston World Series of Dog Shows expected to take place on July 17-21.

Some residents who were around during Hurricane Ike said that this reminded them of the time that panels also flew off of the roof at the Reliant Center.

NRG Park released the following statement:

“Like many of our neighbors in the Gulf Coast region, NRG Park sustained damage from Hurricane Beryl, including to the roof of NRG Stadium. HCSCC officials are collaborating with state, county, and city officials to assist with recovery efforts throughout the region. This collective undertaking requires all of us to work together with a strong commitment to our community. While we assist with these efforts, we are also assessing the extent of damages to NRG Park facilities. We look forward to seeing our neighbors at NRG Park soon as we return to normal operations,” said Ryan M. Walsh, CEO/Executive Director.
