Humanity is not Lost

For folks not in Houston, the national media has understated the depth of the Flood. As of Noon today, 6 Trillion gallons of water has fallen on the Houston area. By the way, it’s been pouring here since Noon. 

80% of houston is under water. Over 6 trillion gallons of water had been dumped onto Houston as of Noon today. 

Folks from all over Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and beyond have driven to Houston with their boats, they have picked the furthest spot the could and deployed their boat and just started hauling people out. When each one of them was asked “Why did you do it” the response was simply “it’s the right thing to do”. The generosity and selfless and optimism of all, rescuers and rescuees is touching and frankly, overwhelming. Humanity is not lost. (I’ll admit it thought it was)

There has been looting by a whopping 4 people who were promptly arrested and thrown in jail. There has been no other looting. I have never heard, in my living memory, of a disaster of this size where there was almost no looting. Amazing. 

We are fine. We have power. Pray for the rain to stop. Not just for us, we have our own worries to be sure, but of the thousands and thousands of those who are with out. 

Wow! The Empire State Building just dimmed their lights for the victims of Harvey. 

Just Wow.
