So good to see such a competent administration, a high degree of federal readiness, and what a great message today.

'No no, it's not fake news now. Please listen to your local news for the best Harvey updates.'
'Good luck everybody!'
'Hey guys! Can you believe it! I'm at camp David. I know I know. I'm totally monitoring this thing from there."
'No, now is not the time to lose faith in your government. We do that in 2020 when I need your votes. Right now you have to trust me. We will handle it.'

Guess who pushed for FEMA disaster offsets post Katrina in 05 ... tee-hee ... Pence. ;)

You've got full confidence in this administration to do bumble-f-of anything?
Those fake quotes up there, are essentially things all said by the administration today.

Pray for Texas.

Quigley, everyone knows the hurricane was caused by a hacked fidget spinner, made by the Russians, supported by Trump, because it is designed to blow all the illegals back over the border. MAGA

Pretty idiotic to wish ill on anyone. That will always come back to the wisher themselves. You can however find lots of people on the internet saying that the people who disbelieve the warnings, failed to listen to their news and officials, are going to be the ones to suffer most.

I suggest reading carefully what I wrote.

There is no doubt that we, America, are all with Texas tonight.

This all pretty much rings hollow to me. You started the thread as an obvious jab at Trump and you're only back tracking now that a few people have RIGHTFULLY called you out for trying to use a natural disaster where people may die as an idiotic way to push your political views.

It's immature, childish, and garbage. These type of threads bring down the quality of conversation here at PatNet.

Let's hope people you love are never caught in a Category 4 hurricane with their lives at risk. That would be a horrible time for you I would imagine, just wondering if they will be alright and safe, and not pinned under some collapsed wall.

It is by no means as bad as TV screams. We are close to landfall (by TX standards) and we have just rain and wind. Even Corpus Christi has little damage. My guess is that it will not be nearly as bad as Ike in 2008, provided that it does not rain for a week.

It's not going to rain for a week. The dry air to the west behind it, is transferring all of the moisture out into the Western Atlantic.

The winds never got to 150mph yesterday either that was bull crap. Having been through 5 in South Florida myself.
At night even 75mph winds look like the world is going to end. The guy in the Car Wash said it was 150mph winds.
It would have taken that Tin Roof in the back along with his building and sent it sailing through the sky.

After Andrew in 92, nothing like car wash was left standing on US1 and 152nd Street.

The Storm produced a ton of Moisture but the weather bureau was not being honest about where all of the Moisture was going. The dry air to the West moving East, was sucking up the moisture out of the Gulf and conveying it to the Atlantic. It rained so hard here in South Florida that the flat roof over one of my additions sprung a leak.

The Surge was not as deep as reported either. Surges are not tidal water, or waves pilling up like NASA explains them. Surges are the Fresh water dumped on the ocean that is lighter than the salt water, is being pushed along the surface of the ocean. So the more rain the storm dumps the bigger the surge. This storm's moisture was being extracted from it, even as the winds were building up. It was being wound up like a spindle. As moisture fed into the Caribbean, the dry air was sucking the water back out into the Atlantic.
When this is all said and done it will be some Southern Atlantic states that get the most flooding. Georgia wont be able to absorb all of the Rain that is just miles off their coast right now.

I have no idea why people tie Trump into hurricane business, there is no connection between him and wind/rain as far as I can tell. I think that the man is borderline crazy, but trying to jab him because hurricane hits Texas or we have avalanche on Moon is stupid. And even more stupid is to blame him for local rednecks refusing mandatory evacuation orders, which is the only possible cause of disaster here.

I think they have no clue where it will go. The track seems to change on bi-daily basis.

Hopefully it does not get to Gulf again - then it can become dangerous again.

From all news reports, Trump's Federal agencies are doing yeoman's work with rescuing thousands, providing places to stay for people who've been flooded out, and sending in aid. Even before the storm was over they were there. Looks like he's better than Obama! The last big flood they had in the South, he was also better than Obama, sending tractor trailers of aid before he was even elected President.

From ground zero here. It's wet, wet and more wet. Thankfully I am dry and my electricity is still on, something that thousands and thousands can't say. On the other hand, it's not over yet. Nights are worse than days. We have at least two more days. Say prayers for us.

"But I think the real driver for flood loss and impact in Houston is the built environment," Brody told ABC News in an interview Sunday. "This is a human-induced problem. Houston is a rapidly growing metropolitan area."

Because of all the rapid development in the city, the natural drainage patterns of the region have been changed.

"Instead of water seeping into the soil or running into the bayous, we're starting to see it run into people's homes," Brody said.

Houston uses bayous as its main drainage system, however the city has no major levee system in place.

But in trying to drain the water quickly from one place to another, you run the risk of harming another community downstream.

Brody added that Houston and the Harris County flood control district have "done amazing work" given the resources provided to them.

What can be done?

Brody argued that there needs to be a commitment to protect Houston because it is the fourth most populous city in the U.S.

"We've made some really good progress, but there's a lot more we can do in the future with time, funding, and commitment to make things happen," Brody said.

One of the issues that could improved, Brody said, is making local communities and its residents aware of flood risks.

"There's a real lack of awareness and messaging that reaches out to those neighborhood levels," Brody said.

Another way the local government could help be better equipped to deal with flooding is planning out how it's developing the city.

According to Brody, Houston also needs to focus not just on improving its physical infrastructure approach to flood mitigation, but thinking more widely of the surrounding communities.

What has been done?

In January, the city announced projects -- an estimate $130 million -- to expedite flood relief in areas surrounding the Brays, Hunting and White bayous.

"These projects will greatly reduce the flood threat for residents along these bayous and remove hundreds of properties out of the 100 year flood plain,” said Mayor Sylvester Turner said in a press release.

The action came just weeks after Turner authorized a Storm Water Action Team to replace sewer inlets and grates and other projects.

300+ gators could escape as Texas flood waters approach height of fences

BEAUMONT, Texas (CNN/WNCN) — Officials at an alligator tourist attraction in Texas say that flood waters are close to exceeding the height of fences that are keeping hundreds of gators inside.

KFDM reported that Gator County has more than 350 gators in outside areas of the attractions.

“We’re less than a foot a foot from (water) going over the fences,” Gator County Owner Gary Saurage told the TV station.

The Louisiana Cajun Navy is on its way. I wouldn't worry about those gators after the Cajuns get there. Not at all.

Trump should raise hands to Heaven and yell: "I command the rain to stop and waters part!" If this does not work, he is a piss-poor president, just like king Canute who was not able to stop tides.
