Hurricane Harvey

Postby Strong Eagle » Mon, 28 Aug 2017 11:15 pm

Has come through Houston... actually, it is so large it has flooded a 200 mile wide swath of Texas. The flooding is worst in Houston. We received 5 inches of rain on Friday, more than 18 inches of rain through Sunday morning, and 5 more inches on Sunday night. It's raining again.

We have been fortunate... the water has lapped within inches of our house but none has come in. Others have not been so fortunate... with a foot of water in their homes, to the northeast part of Houston where floodwaters are as much as 10 feet deep.

Thank you for the update, SE. Stay safe. This is going to be one of the most expensive disaster faced by USA. I know I will be making my donation. Many FB sites with updates....

The f*cking hump still hasn't decided if he will accept flood assistance from Mexico, which has offered supplies, personnel, and assets such as boats and high water vehicles. May the pandering whore drown in Buffalo Bayou.

The nerve of those Mexicans, trying to take away Donnie Trump's ability to berate them by their acting generously & neighbourly (like they did for Katrina).
