PUSH THROUGH #HOUSTON

3 Comments

My city has been through catastrophic flooding over the past couple of days. Thousands of people have been displaced from their homes. Our convention centers have 9,000 people that need pillows, blankets, new packages of underwear because people left their homes with only one bag and have not been able to return to their homes. This is my retention pond near my house.

Schools will be closed until after Labor Day and parents are not able to commute to their jobs because our entire city has been inundated with water.

Rivers are expected to crest by Thursday or Friday and reservoirs and levees are being released slowly into our cities and small surrounding areas. Not only that it continues to rain daily.

Sorry for cutting off the photo credits. These photos are from a CNN article.

News Reporters are asking residents to stay put for the next 24 hours, but to also help in your nearby communities.

My sons and I are safe and will be out volunteering today at my church.

This too shall pass but Harvey will be moving along the coast with heavy rains towards Louisiana. I’m praying for the safety of everyone and please pray that we work together as a community and we can get back to our normal lives.

Trust and Believe that you will have what you need to get through life’s challenges!

President Trump, please do not come to TX empty handed. Most restaurants are still not operable, and grocery store owners are trying to manage the crowd by having people stand in line to get inside to buy food.

Have Mercy! 🙏🏽⚠️🚨🚣☔️
