Catastrophe

Hurricane Harvey, has, up till now, been quite unpredictable. Indeed, as I type this, the tracking 'cone' is a big circle. However , best guess looks like Harvey is going to nail Corpus Christi almost dead on. The storm is expected to be a high category 3 or even a 4 by the time it makes landfall and as much as 60 inches of rain are predicted for some areas. 



There is a bit of uncertainty...

Ubu is 200 miles north in the vicinity of Houston and they started evacuating last night. Ubuville is supposed to get 20+ inches of rain tonight and this is expected to be a three or four day event as the storm is expected to stall, bounce out to sea, and come back ashore somewhere between New Orleans and Corpus Christi.

1 Not evacuating, though we were released from work early yesterday.  We got some heavy rain this morning, but we're in the clear right now.

2 Are you sure about that, Ubu?  According to YouTube and Twitter, everyone in Southeast Texas must be dead by now.

4 I'm in Brenham, about 60 miles west of Houston, and I've had steady rain since last night. Nothing devastating, and no wind worth mentioning.

5 I know someone who evacuated from Port Aransas. He was facebooking updates, and the town is quite beaten up, but not leveled. Lots of structures still standing with varying degree of damage. However, the city systems are down. In particular the sewer is a problem.
