Awful, continued

This scene is almost incomprehensible. The water must be at least 15 feet deep on a road. This scene is repeated in many, many locations throughout southeast Texas. Thousands of high water rescues have already been performed and many, many more will come. So many lives terribly disrupted, homes, cars, jobs, businesses, livelihoods wrecked. More rain is on the way for already affected areas. Far southeast Texas and Louisiana may be similarly affected by Hurricane Harvey’s remnants.

The tragedy will continue unfolding for days, possibly weeks. Recovery will take years.

Your help is needed. I’ve donated to the American Red Cross and encourage you to donate to the reputable agency of your choice.

Companion animals, strays, lost pets, animal shelters, will also need help. I hope you will consider donating to such a group as RedRover (disclosure: I am a volunteer), the Humane Society of the United States, or another group.
