Until they are rebuilt, these structures on Key Allegro along Aransas Bay recall the impact of Hurricane Harvey, presenting a hauntingly beautiful scene in the wake of last August’s storm. Key Allegro—a resort community with residences, second homes, and rentals—is located on an approximately 200-acre island near the northernmost end of Broadway Street between Rockport and Fulton.
