CHAD MYERS, METEOROLOGIST: (...) Baytown, you mentioned that. You notice all of the roads here around Houston. Baytown itself not that far from Galveston Bay. That’s why it’s called Baytown. And there are some cells there moving into that area, coming in from the east.

MUNDINGER: No, sir, we’ve been talking about, you know, how many may have stayed on a percentage basis. I think there’s general consensus that 75 to 80 percent of Baytownians have evacuated.
