Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in the Houston area affected by Harvey. At the time of this post, residents are grappling with unprecedented flooding with more rain predicted by the National Weather Service. Emergency responders are prioritizing 911 calls based on situations with the most immediate threat to human life. Please, if you are in an area where evacuation orders have been given, do not hesitate to obey the advice. Flood waters rise extremely rapidly, and it can be too late to change your mind later.

Emergency shelters are being established throughout the region. The American Red Cross has opened multiple shelters around Houston. Dallas is preparing a 5,000 bed shelter at the main convention center which will open 08/29.

Numerous highways are flooded, and road closures are in the dozens. Extreme care should be taken on the roads. Do not attempt to drive through flooded roadways; water can cause your motor to stall, and floodwaters can have powerful currents. Turn around – don’t drown.

The Houston Independent School District has closed all schools for the week of August 28.

Stay alert to changing weather conditions by following the National Weather Service radar and forecast for Houston.

Prioritize your safety! Homes can be repaired and rebuilt; things can be replaced. Houston’s greatest strength, and most priceless resource, is its people.
