Hurricane Harvey's Fury

FLOODING EMERGENCY IN HOUSTON. HURRICANE HARVEY dumping 25 inches rain on Houston and other cities like Rockport, Corpus Christi, Victoria and HARVEY won't leave till Thursday, so storms not over. NEWS NOW shows people stranded, highway is flooded and motorists are stuck. Live video shows many cars under water and motorists walking knee-deep in water on highway. STUCK STUCK STUCK. People out wading in water and CAN'T go forward and can't back up. Power lines down, buildings, homes churches blown apart and electricity off; people in the dark. Hundreds of people bundled together in shelters. NEWS said many people have climbed onto their roofs because their homes are under water with living area insided house flooded like victims did in New Orleans in Katrina Hurricane. Looks like Katrina all over again, and looks like Hurricane Harvey skipped Louisiana and East coast this time and struck TEXAS. Roads, streets, highways turned into rivers and we see women, men and children being rescued in boats pulled toward safety by rescuers with water up to their chests. Helicopters flying around trying to lift people to safety, if they can reach individuals without rescuers placing their lives in danger. People need to watch out for snakes that swim in water, and possibly, alligators and other animals. READ how to survive Mother Nature disasters like thunder lightening storms, earthquakes, horrific hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. NEWS says "Turn around don't drown." BUY NOW life-saving tips are suspenseful, and shocking! WHAT A MESS. This means people can't go to work, schools, churches, stores or their homes for, perhaps weeks; therefore, will lose income. Many homeowners don't have home and flood insurance and have lost their home being torn up, their pets, and everything they own in this world!
