Hurricane Harvey

To anyone here in the Gulf Coast Texas region.....stay safe, have a plan. To anyone here who has family and friends in this mess, stay strong and trust in them. It's getting real out here folks and it's supposed to be like this for a couple of days.

Nature really sucks sometimes. This is so sad. All those photos of animals. I hope all the Texas dromers are staying as positive as possible and getting help they need.

We are, I know here in Houston even with the deaths and the loss we mostly only think of each other. Almost if not all my friends here are trying whatever they can to help out. Brother took in a man with his two dogs, complete stranger because he got stranded.

That's awesome to know that he's doing something for the victims.

I'm trying to convince my school principal on several things. Outside a major personal issue, I'm trying to see if we can raise money to help the victims.

Some of you may be aware of the organization Hoops for Hearts. Assuming I don't get my ass sued possibly, () I'm trying to do something similar to it. We had a student in my grade who passed away five years ago from heart conditions; money made for the event dedicated to him went to the family and other victims. Due to this, I want to see if we can do something akin to it once more.

Regardless, I give my condolences for all those impacted right now by the hurricane itself.

So sorry about what is happening in your home, I can only imagine what it must be like for everyone.

My cousin up in Austin is actually coming down to help as a counselor, schools are gonna need a lot of help around here. I heard a bunch of Texas principals banded up to help out here. All of that aside people forget the trauma and stress people are going to have afterwards as a result of this, I know at the Psychiatric hospital I work out we're bracing for the massive influx we'll have here due to all of this.

Yeah, I think a lot of people are going to need mental help after all of this. It's good to see people helping out though.

All the eastern-ish Texans (and other areas impacted) here okay, I hope?


Hoping Irma doesn't take off in that direction. (Not that I want my coast over here to get it either. )

Someone needs to take Irma and shoot her in the back, no one needs that ex-jealous GF right now.

lol Personally I keep wanting to somehow reference TMNT's Irma in relation to it. At best, it's untrustworthy like Nick's version.

Yeah, I made a TMNT reference to my mom the other day. I said, "Well, looks like April ticked her off and now she's gone full hurricane."

Beetlejuice reference would be cool though I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

My heart goes to all victims of Hurricane Harvey. Texas will take years to have full recovery.

I hope Hurricane Irma will not come. She is a small hurricane like that infamous Andrew. People told me horrific stories about him.
