I read in a post here that they will use the Dallas convention center as a mega shelter


It's what they did after NOLA. Many were taken to Houston I believe and then sent on to other places where they could be gotten on their feet again unless they wanted to go back home.

I am guessing they will be processed at Dallas for lack of a better term and then the same thing will happen - other places in the country will take them in like last time.

I would guess so. A lot of senior communities will have a house pet, either dog or cat, these days. I can't imagine it would be left behind.

That's the best bet right now.

Anyone who can with a boat, and they're going to have to coordinate their efforts very well to try to get to as many people as they can as quickly as they can.

And I hate to say this, but right now, it's time to stop worrying about increasing people coming in from other places for the immediate near term. We have a large number of internal refugees who need to be taken care of.

I'm back...

Lost the net Sat morning, came up at 7pm today.

70 to 80 miles from landfall, 30-50 miles from where the eye wandered around for a couple of day. Tropical force winds and 12 inches of rain. The rain nearer the eye was much less then the later out bands. Glad Harvey is moving on.

Out of Family in Houston area, 2 houses got wet.

I know the disaster continues but the law changes in Texas Friday so sharing this now.

Lawyers to Harvey victims: File insurance claims before law changes Sept. 1 or risk losing money


A new law, set to take effect Friday, aims to crack down on frivolous insurance lawsuits. But House Bill 1774 also reduces the penalty fees that insurance companies face for late payments if the policyholder files a lawsuit

Thoughts continue for all those in harm's way. I'm so glad some of our members have been able to check in here.

Oh my gosh..That's scary. I've been bitten many times by fire ants. They form these pimple-like pustules, burn and itch like mad!!

A lady posted some photos of alligators wading outsidea her flooded home. What a nightmare.

THAT is exactly where my concerns are right now, as well, my friend. I haven't "bumped' into him in about 36 hours- over at TA's Stream. Anybody have a number for him? Has he checked in with anyone here?

Jaded posted in another thread around 9:30 last night so he seems okay for now. It was the thread about Hurricane Harvey: The potential to change US history.

Out here on the western edge then sun is shining after 4 days of rain.

Sounds like Houston is getting the north wind. That was the wind here yesterday. Hopefully it means the drier air is near there.

A Houston police officer drowned in his patrol car in Harvey floodwaters, according to three department officials.

The officer, an HPD veteran who has been with the department for more than 30 years, was in his patrol car driving to work downtown Sunday morning when he got trapped in high water at I-45 and the Hardy Toll Road.

Search and rescue crews are currently recovering his body. The department has not yet formally notified the officer's family.

"He was trying different routes, and took a wrong turn," one high-ranking official said, asking not to be identified.

After getting trapped in high water, the officer tried to get out but was unable to.
