BOLIVAR PENINSULA (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - Voluntary evacuations are in place all along the Texas coastline, but on the Bolivar Peninsula some are deciding to stay in place as Hurricane Harvey bears down.

Some fear Highway 87 could become impassable, trapping those who decided to ride out the storm.

At least one shelter in La Marque is still open and continues taking people in who need to stay safe.
