Cool

Ray:

Just saw news pics of Rockfort and the flooding, devastation. It is a miracle that there has not been more fatalities. Stay safe.

We have been following it too. 500,000 without power, many under water, ~1,000 rescued but the death toll is down to a minimum for a 500-year catastrophe. Thank God Trump is ahead of the game and well prepared, unlike past presidents. This team is the best we have ever seen. - Dave

Default Me & A Cat 4 Hurricane Harvey....

Tonights Update: Tropical Storm Harvey has backed up, back over the Cuero area (last I heard, my son still is without power but is okay) and according to my local weather the eye is now sitting nearly back on the coastline somewhere around Port Lavaca, or Port O'Connor. It packs winds of about 45mph now, and expected to go back into the Gulf for about 24 hours, and then move back in across the coastline again moving to the northeast and go by Houston on the EAST side of the city. That means that Baytown, and New Orleans and the Louisiana area are going to get more of it, but still at Tropical Storm levels. Rainfall in my part of the city has only been 1 inch, as we have been pretty well out of the range of this storm. In fact, we spent part of the day in the sun, and it was cool enough not to even run the AC the last few days. On the eastern side, 3 inches, but areas to the northeast of us have had 23 inches of rain and Houston 22 inches to this point. For a lot more details on this storm check out the Drudge Report. www.drudgereport.com. We have rain in our forecast for the entire coming week, higher forecasts the first few days but then tapering off as this system finally moves out of our area to attack other parts of the country...

Ray glad to hear that the tropical storm has " Rainfall in my part of the city has only been 1 inch, as we have been pretty well out of the range of this storm"

Our thoughts and prayers are with the areas hit when Harvey comes back inland.

This mornings Update: Tropical Storm Harvey is back on the coastline with about 40mph winds. It will move back into the Gulf for a day or so, and then move back into the Texas coastline, is the prediction. This time, it may go back in around Galveston, or just east of it or Houston. That is good if it does because it puts them on the LEFT side of the storm where less damage occurs. It is bad news for far east Texas, and Louisiana and other areas east of that, because they will be catching the east side storm bands instead.. As for my son, his power is back on, and they were out looking for a restaurant to eat breakfast at... He said he has not gotten much sleep since Thursday....

Latest Update on TS Harvey. It has moved back into the Gulf packing 45mph winds and will probably sit there for a day or two. It has moved a bit eastward on the coastline and is expected to go back inland as a Tropical Storm somewhere EAST of Houston. If it does, that should help that city because it will be to the WEST of the eye. Unfortunately, that means that more of Louisiana and New Orleans in particular is gonna get a lot more rain dumped on it. Then by around Thursday, it is predicted to head off up Louisiana, towards Memphis and mess with that part of the country. But it will have lost its source of water and should eventually fade out... Here is the current radar.

Latest update: Reportedly, a 15th person has lost their life as a result of this storm, when a policeman was reported to have drowned in his patrol car. One levee has been reported having been breached southwest of Houston, and people in that area have been told to leave. Two reservoirs in Houston have overflowed and will further flood Houston. One of them that I know of is the one they were letting water out of to try and prevent that from happening, which caused further flooding. Now there will be even more. It is reported that Houston as received 49.2" of rain to break an old record. Houston normally gets that kind of rain in a YEAR! Pres. Trump and First Lady Melania have landed in Corpus Christi and have met with the Governor of Texas and is meeting with others to see what further needs to be done to help Texas and Louisina. He brought key members of his administration with him to assist in surveying the damage. It is being reported that this storm will start moving inland in the next day or so, EAST of Houston and will make landfall in Louisiana, which is already getting clobbered by heavy rains and wind, as is New Orleans...

Default Donating To Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief

The following information has been suggested if members of Squarebirds.org want to do whatever they can to assist in the Disaster Recovery from the damage done by Hurricane Harvey. This Hurricane is being labeled as the most damaging one of the last 500 years, and some say the last 1,000 years because of the extreme flood damage primarily. It is being reported that the Houston area has received 52.3" of rainfall, over just a few days which exceeds their yearly annual totals.

It has been suggested that you might want to donate, through your church, or through organizations that are providing immediate funding, supplies and manpower to the victims of the Hurricane. One organization that comes to mind is Rev. Franklin Graham's "Samaritans Purse" relief organization. They have been providing great worldwide relief for quite a few years. They have been in Houston working as quickly as they could get there, with two units in that area now and several more units to follow.

https://www.samaritanspurse.org/disa...H-F17V_HHFG-LP

Your Pastor can provide you with information regarding other Hurricane Harvey relief units that they are supporting or put you in contact with others.

Another good organization to consider is the Salvation Army.

https://give.salvationarmyusa.org/si...donation=form1

It is not the intent of Squarebirds.org to recommend one organization over another. Please perform your own research as to which organizations are providing active relief.

Default Me & A Cat 4 Hurricane Harvey....

Latest Update: TS Harvey is moving back onto the Texas coastline and will probably go in over night in the Galveston area, east of Houston, moving northeast. It is being predicted that the rain will end in Houston tonight and if you look at the projected radar image that seems to be so. Winds are at 50mph now as it will head towards the Texas/Louisiana line, then up through Louisiana and up towards Memphis. It looks like Houston is finally going to be free of the rainfall from this Hurricane, but certainly not from all the water that has piled up because of it. It may be days before the streets are clear of water, or even longer... This is going to be a very long and probably the most costly hurricane recovery in our history.
