Dallas is getting many flood survivors from the Houston area and other cities hit hard by Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey hit hard against the Texas Gulf Coast area and many of those who were evacuated from the areas worst hit have been moved from their flood filled homes to areas in Dallas and other cities in North Texas.

It was a category 3 for the longest time until it suddenly was announced by the local weather man that it was suddenly upgraded to a category 4 hurricane with sustained winds of 130 MPH and perhaps even higher.

The worst is yet to come, as flood waters travel across the open flood gates of dams. People are still being brought to safety and the numbers are ever increasing.

This is said to be a 500 year storm. I don't know exactly how they figure this but as far as I can tell, global climate change is behind the current level of natural disasters world wide.

Texas is getting a lot of support from all over the USA and many of the areas of Dallas, where I live, have set up evacuation areas to house the many thousand people who have been displaced, not knowing when or if they will have a home to return to after all of this has passed.

It will be a very big issue for all concerned, including President Donald J. Trump, who arrived in Dallas today.

Dallas, in fact has only had brief moments of light rainfall. The storm redirected as a tropical storm and moved East into Louisiana.

I was so sorry to hear about the terrible rainfall in Houston. The tropical storm seems to be very localized and slow moving and continuing to pick up water from the Gulf of Mexico. Glad you are not being affected by it in Dallas and that your city and others can help those from Houston.

The CAN DO spirit is alive a well here in Dallas, Texas. I see people getting assistance and local places like the corner YMCA providing temporary shelter to many who just arrived over the past few days.
