You're right. I guess that is why the storm is coming to hit my state now. Maybe I can repence my sins.

"apparent"
You think? Makes me sick to my stomach. We aren't anywhere near Katrina levels of death yet but here we are, the same shit happening. The next choppers they send out for rescues better have guns on them.


Hey don't forget, Texas is the state where they have tried passing laws requiring people to carry guns. No surprise a bunch of people there have guns. Derp.

I'm outside of Houston , living in adjacent Fort Bend County . I've been surrounded by water since Friday night , but ok . Now my 3 sons are a different story . The youngest had to evacuate (mandatory) , middle son's home is by the Brazos River (see it from his back windows) , but his subdivision is built high by streets are flooded (by design) . The oldest boy is also flooded in due to the street design . I wish I still had my big ole' Dodge Powerwagon . Had a 4" suspension lift , 3" body lift & 38" tall Super Swamper mud tires . Truck could go anywhere (but not pass a gas station , lol ), but had to sell it due to health reasons (couldn't climb in it anymore) . We lost power briefly twice Friday night , even though their was no wind . The wonders of living outside the city ! Got a generator for power if needed .

On conspiracy theory web sites they are saying it's because of nibiru is approaching earth and and it's close enough now to affect earth and the anunnaki are returning on September 23rd to take our women and gold. It has to do with the eclipse and what was written on 12,000 year old sand script stone tablets n

My brother lives near Houston. Luckily his house is on a slight hill so he hasn't flooded...yet. Looks like things aren't getting a lot better there though I think they're pretty much just waiting to see if they get a mandatory evacuation or not at this point.

Not the craziest thing I've heard on these forums to be honest.

First Hopefully the loss of life and severe injuries wiil be low / but this a epic disaster! and still not done



I cant imagine the aftrermath / houses possesions destroyed / mold problems / and I am talking on a personal level not even the infrastucture.

Even after where are people going to stay / even food supplies will be difficult to move as some roads are gone .

A bad experiense for those misplaced by Katrina to Texas



Houston's Flood Is a Design Problem
It’s not because the water comes in. It’s because it is forced to leave again.


https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2017/08/why-cities-flood/538251/

Then no EVAC orders for Houston I know thet talk about what happened recently where an evac was given and there some bad higways wrecks in the panic no gas

a short list of problems

Just think even though the underground tanks are sealed they may have to be pumped out and refined again ley alone the safety checks

Been thinking about Houston a lot; I have friends and family there as well as a lot of memories. I'm in Corpus Christi, still don't have power at the house since the storm, but otherwise OK. I can't imagine what Houston is going through.

Keeping it classy...

Yet somehow the press still considers themselves to be the voice of the people.

Clinton won Harris County by 13 points. Is it really that hard to research before you publish?

Sen. Ted Cruz was actually useful during the disaster, providing tips for flood victims.

What does that have to do with the anything? The disaster affected more than just Houston and the illustrator's of these cartoons are making swipes at Texas and it's citizens as a whole. Really had to dig deep for that one, didn't you.

Yep, you know it's bad when other journalists are shaming you. Good on them for having some clarity.

And meanwhile while some in the press ridicule the victims Trump is donating $1 million of his own money to them. That'll be helpful in 2018.

I would argue against that. Become a statistic! They are the best. They make you special.
