This a beautifully written account of the disaster that Harvey caused on the coast of Texas and beyond. This event caused, by Mother Nature, needs to be documented for future generations to read. This is written by a friend and fellow Blogger who always reports on stories and news packed full of excellence and quality content. I hope this account of the disaster is shared my many.
Harvey made landfall on Friday as a Category 4 hurricane and stalled out as a tropical storm over the coastal areas of Texas, just southwest of Houston.
It unleashed dangerously high winds and dumped catastrophic amounts of rain with a total of up to 50″ projected before it moves out of Texas on Wednesday.
Tropical Storm Harvey sent massive floods through the Houston area Sunday, chasing thousands to rooftops or higher ground and overwhelming rescuers. FEMA estimates 30,000 will seek safe haven in shelters.
Federal disaster declarations indicate the storm has so far affected about 6.8 million people.
About 50 Texas counties and parts of Louisiana will face serious repercussions from the “landmark event.”
