Devastating 'Harvey' floods Houston, Texas

Harvey floods Texas: Devastated Houston is paralyzed


  • Flooding: Officials are calling the flooding in Houston and other parts of Texas "unprecedented." And the situation could get even worse if a record-breaking 50 inches of rain falls in coming days.
  • Flood watches: Around 13 million people are under flood watches and warnings stretching from Corpus Christi to New Orleans.
  • Damage: More than 300,000 customers have lost electricity across Texas.

As Hurricane Harvey drenched Texas and left a trail of destruction across the Lone Star State, a lonely hawk became a YouTube star after finding shelter with a friendly cab driver.

William Bruso of the coastal city of Houston uploaded a video on August 25, as the hurricane was still out to sea, saying "a Coopers hawk is seeking refuge in my car and does not want to leave".

Coopers are a medium-sized hawk native to the continental United States and parts of Canada and Mexico.

Houston, before and after:



Emergency services are so overwhelmed that people have taken to Instagram and Twitter to ask for help:



U.S. National Weather Service:
"This event is unprecedented and all impacts are unknown and beyond anything experienced."
WeatherBell meteorologist Ryan Maue:
“This is worse than the worst-case scenario for Houston.”
President Trump:
"Experts are calling Harvey a once in 500 year flood."
Head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Brock Long:
"FEMA is going to be there for years. This disaster is going to be a landmark event."

Yeah, be glad we have everything in working order. Actually we should be thankful for each and every little thing we take for granted. Fit and fine body, senses, a home, a family, child/children, basics..

Tempted to agree with the 'ignorant part '
Anyways, People will blame climate change and Trump has been known to be climate change denial guy.

Probably, the ones to blame are not too ignorant and know now it s not the time to start the blame.
