The Takeaway first spoke with Paul Pendergraft on Friday, just before Hurricane Ike tore through Texas. His home has no electricity and a maze of fallen power lines and downed trees make traveling difficult so he is temporarily staying in the offices of KUHF-Houston Public Radio. Five counties are at least partially without power, and it will be several weeks before everyone is back online. Pendergraft talked about the damage to the greater south Texas region.Guest: Paul Pendergraft, senior producer, KUHF-Houston Public Radio
