A ton of people in this country are one disaster away from living under a bridge

My sister recently moved, from Katy to Spring and the lake behind their house empties in to a creek that is flooded, so water is filling the lake up, from the spill way as well as the normal drainage paths into it.

I just talked to me BIL and he said they have 4 to 5 feet of elevation before the house is in danger, but there is a ton more rain expected.

I read that 7-eleven is matching Red Cross donations, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $150K red cross link

Plenty of folks there are going to need help, glad to see the Cajun Navy is there.

One of the news commentators today made the statement that more than half of "middle class families" in America don't have $500 in emergency funds and that almost all the "lower income families" have less than $100 of accessible funds. That pretty much means that the majority of people affected by the "Harvey floods" will need significant help in trying to cope with the situation they are in. Whether it's Red Cross, Salvation Army, a church group of some other means of helping fund the recovery efforts, I'm positive those affected by this disaster will appreciate everything we can do to help them.

After all, but for luck or good fortune, every one of us could be facing the same kind of disaster, whether from flooding, fire, earthquake or some other situation that we simply have no means to prevent.
