Hurricane Harvey

Our very own soap box.

Hurricane Harvey

Postby An American Breeder » Thu Aug 24, 2017 11:16 am

Hopefully all we know, all who read here will be safe in the coming days.

Harvey now rated Category 3, if winds continue will be rated higher.
With two High Fronts, smaller one above Dallas/along Arkansas and a large High over desert areas Arizona and New Mexico this hurricane is believed will be trapped, thus dump and dump rain. IF it backs down again into the Gulf of Mexico it could just sit, spin, gather up wind again, and come in, but they believe if so will be further East. That means Houston, maybe New Orleans.

If for some reason one would need to contact people, ask for assistance use this forum. Okay Romney?

First blow to come from Hurricane Harvey 2017 is almost the entire coast line of Texas. Will be a Category 3 at least.

Worried about all the livestock in this area. Corpus Christi folks being evacuated to San Antonio who itself is under a Tropical Storm warning.

Doomsday projections are not 30 inches of rain, isolated, but a general area of up to 50 inches of rain.

Seems Texas coastal towns came through this pretty good! Category 4 Hurricane on scale, close at times to a 5 level. Now down, Saturday morning to a Category 1 but it is the rains doing damage now.

If your property then of course, bad news, but mainly downed utility poles, street signs, uprooted trees, with no power for thousands. Lot of evacuations! to San Antonio and to Austin. Rockport took the attack hard, Corpus Christi as well.

EDIT: Port Aransas had damage to every building. Town under curfew as are I believe couple of other towns.

Houston flooding unbelievable

Remember there are over 1 million head of cattle in this area! That means horses, working horses, mostly Quarters. So what did the Quarter Horse Assoc people do? Why they created a web page and put it up on Twitter with full disclaimer notice
names, phone numbers to call for help!

Rural Roots from Iowa organizing relief aid for farm families affected by Harvey Flood

Individuals who care to donate should consider the State of Texas Agriculture Relief Fund (STAR) created solely with monetary donations from private individuals and companies and managed by the Texas Department of Agriculture.

Now comes Irma... :-(
A number of people are staying with their horses. Praying they get through. For anyone else staying I recommend the third floor of a really solid building.

Or hiding deep in your fancy wine cellar!

People made it through. on Twitter carrying photos of those I find saving cattle, horses from these two hurricanes. And now in Montana finally rain and snow. Told the air quality in Calgary past weeks been past decent breathing quality because of the fires raging in Montana, edge of Idaho and up into Canada. The snow will pass but gives a hint of early arriving winter.

Economic cost will be staggering !
