Hurricane Harvey
« on: August 25, 2017, 07:19:07 pm »
Here's a thread for the hurricane going on right now

As of right now its a category 4

So many families are being effected by it because it formed so fast so the time to evacuate was not much

Please if you are in Texas or near it please be very careful

A lot of cities are very flooded

I'm right in the middle of it
The eye will go right above me

I hope everything goes well for everyone if you are experiencing it

Also if you are in Texas and you didn't evacuate in areas that had mandatory evacuation you probably want to call your local sheriff's office so they know where you're at

Feel free to leave your thoughts and stuff on this thread

Hoping everyone from this forum and their families stay safe, the large amount of hurricanes recently is really troubling.

I'm okay up in Fort Worth, but my family is down in Houston and they might have to go up to my grandma's house in Waco to avoid the collateral, since they aren't evacuating Houston yet

I'm still so worried though, especially about the animals

I really hope you're safe! Please!

This is a terrible thing to hear people go through but I guess... on the bright side it's not every day you learn you'll be in the eye of a hurricane. (idk storms interest me I'd probably go see if it's safe to take a photo while in the eye of the storm and see how calm it is in the eye. but that's just crazy me)

Just... most importantly Don't die please...

I hope everyone being affected by Harvey stays safe! :pawheart:  Nobody deserves to go through this. Best of luck to those who had to evacuate, as well as to those who are currently enduring terrible weather conditions.

The storm is finally out of my city
About 75%-80% of the city is destroyed or damaged
It was a category 4 that hit my city directly
But we have fema, red cross, etc. Here (thanks to my dad because the judge is an asshole)
I hope whoever was hit is doing well

Hey if you guys didn't see, scientists are calling this the worst hurricane in 1,000 years, so basically the worst ever recorded. Because of climate change, we're going to get ones like this more often.

Yeah there's another Category 4 forming right now

Harvey was really bad

I'm missing parts of my roof

I saw a hotel basically torn in half with giant holes all over it yesterday

There's still violence over gasoline for cars

Etc

I feel really bad seeing all this and having nothing to do other than sit and watch it happen... I can't really do much all the way over here besides send some money.

And I really hope all those people on YouTube saying these hurricanes are a sign of God saying we all need to go to church and blaming it all on america being too wicked or something realize that maybe agreeing with the left on clean energy might just as well decrease the impact these storms have?

Like... the impact of burning fuels adds energy to the weather and these storms. Here in Salt Lake City winters and summers swing between more extreemes. Hotter and Hotter summers coupled with colder and harsher winter storms :P

Those would be the radical ones who don't balance their religion with light salting of scientific knowledge. Whoopsie.

It's the end times for sure, but I think fossil fuels are to blame for this one.

People need to be quiet
Just because I don't go to church and don't believe in god doesn't mean I deserve a fully destroyed yard and a badly damaged house that I'm stuck with for awhile because I'm poor + insurance company is being shitty rn
