Scary stuff Loam. Praying for Texas tonight. But just to dog-pile some doom on top of this potential apocalypse. Three words: Galveston National Laboratory.


Ugh, you just had to go there....had forgotten about that. But it is supposedly built to withstand a Cat 5 hurricane if Wiiki has accurate info.

My thoughts and prayers are with those who are affected.

I have particular memories of Ike because his effects were felt here in western KY. Thousands of people just west of our county were without power for nearly two weeks. Lots of folks lost everything in their newly stocked freezers. That was the storm that convinced us we needed a generator to protect our investment in food. It was installed by Novemeber and BOY! were we glad when the ice storm hit us in late January of '09 and left us without power for about two weeks. We were snug and well-fed and able to offer hot showers, a warm bed and hot meals to those who needed them. At the same time we were able to fine-tune our "hunker down" plans.

Keep safe everyone.

Live feed(shared in the thread for it-www.abovetopsecret.com...) is discussing about Rockport-NE of Corpus Christi- now. People are already reported to be trapped.

Can see gas prices going up, whether refineries and more are effected damage wise or other, or not as some there's gas sellers always looking to exploit.

Take care all. Sending regards.

Wow, and yea it's within the darkened "warning" zone of path illustration.
Hope the structure is designed to handle a class 4 to 5 hurricane. Surely it is

I have a husband who is a long haul driver and he is In Harvey on his way to the Houston area. He's not supposed to be there very long, but who knows what could happen. He got stuck at the ass end of Sandy and was stranded there for a couple days. Luckily his company came thru for him and sprung for a hotel for a night.
Anyway, he told me he'd send me updates for all to see, though knowing ATS ya'll will know much more than me by the time I wake up.
Seriously, you folks are BLOODHOUNDS!

I know people who work in that building, they have generators way above what any water level might reach and fuel on site for days and days.

SO, the issue is that Houston doesn't properly plan for storms? How does that "change U.S. history"? If they planned poorly, that's on them. Does this also mean we will hear a lot of whining and blaming the government for local failures, as we did after Katrina?

Don't panic it's Texas. I bet those fokes make a better showing than New Orleans.

Houston getting pummeled by 2-3 inches of rain an hour right now.

For those thinking this is over, think again. It's only getting started.

It's going to rain at that rate for five days.

I just listened to the Houston mayor news conference.

Hope you all remain safe.

If I were in your shoes, I'd have twice as many gallons of whisky.

Are you with family?

I just listened to an interview with Lt. General Russel L. Honoré. He's saying the leadership needs to get people out.

He's this guy, from Katrina days. Link.

Streets are flooding now that have never flooded.

But how do you evacuate 5 million people?

Im so worried this is turning into another Katrina all over again.

There had better be a freaking fantastic support response. I'm hearing they are forcing people to stay in their homes. I understand the tough call. But if the flooding is happening in places it has never flooded, this is going to be bad. REAL BAD.
