Active Start to Spring Break at Port Aransas

Spring Break has definitely broken, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Police in Port Aransas, a beach community which is still struggling to recover from the major damage caused by Hurricane Harvey last August, reported 22 arrests of Spring Breakers just this first weekend, and more than 140 calls for police services due to Spring Break.

Port Aransas says about 70% of their restaurants, bars, and other Spring Break attractions have reopened after most of them suffered major damage when Harvey blew through on August 25.

But, while Port Aransas says it has about 3,000 hotel rooms available, including Air BnB and other services, many of the large beachfront condos which routinely house thousands of Spring Break guests, remain closed, because they took the brunt of Harvey's wrath.

And Spring Breakers are also being warned that samples taken last week near Bob Hall Pier  revealed large amounts of fecal bacteria in the Gulf water, although the levels of fecal bacteria had declined by the weekend.

The levels are now 'low to moderate' which are considered 'safe.'
