As a lot of y’all may know Houston Texas (Where I live) is currently… well underwater. The Houston area has a estimated 15,000,000,000,000 (15 Trillion) Gallons / 56,781,176,760,000 (56 Trillion) Liters amount of rain fall, this is the largest amount of rain fall to hit in the entire history of the united states - except for Hawaii.
Harris county, where Houston is located, is home to just about 6.5 million people. That alone is excluding the rest of south east Texas and other affected areas. This has taken many families from there home due to catastrophic flooding, this has resulted in the national guard, the coast guard and a huge amount of volunteers to help rescue these people. These people are now left without practically anything, along with this the whole city will need redevelopment and as much help as it can get. And of course a lot of stray animals and wild animals are in danger as well.
Many of my friends have lost they’re home and have to be in a shelter until it is safe to return back. I luckily was not flooded through, but I just a inch away from being, lets just say I was up at 3 AM watching the water almost come into my garage. Since then the water has went down, that said my family is safe. Many thanks to y’all who checked up on me during these times. Today we’ve been seeing black hawks fly over, c130s fly over and a lot of military vehicles use the tollway near me.
Thats where hopefully some of you guys step in. I would like to ask if anyone in our great community would be able to donate to the red cross to help those affected. We seriously need it, I know Houston will recover, but it wont be easy. That being said I really hope some of you are able to donate to help us in this extremely difficult time. If you do donate please acknowledge that you did by posting so below. If your unable to I understand that some people cant due to their own finical difficulties or other reasons. But do remember that Every Dollar Counts!
I will come back on to the forums to check and see if any one was able to donate, many thanks for all the prayers, donations and support sent our way in the bayou city.
