Hurricane Harvey Severe But We’re TEXAS Strong!

by Texas Homesteader ~

Our fellow Texans to the south of us on the Gulf Coast really took a lashing when hurricane Harvey came to shore.  He powered to shore at 9:45 Friday evening as a monstrous Category 4 hurricane just northeast of Corpus Christi. It looks like Rockport, TX took a direct hit.  Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that his primary concern remains “dramatic flooding” as the storm treks slowly inland.  Homes & business are completely destroyed, electricity is out for thousands. Many roads are impassible and damage is severe.

But Harvey doesn’t know you don’t mess with TEXAS.  We’re all one big family and we’ll band together to get through it…

We’re TEXAS Strong!

    I love your Texas spirit. I could live there and adopt that if didn’t have such terrible weather. California has beautiful weather but crummy attitudes and politics. Glad you and rancher man are safe. It will be interesting to see how much rain you get Stay dry

      So far we’ve not received any rain at all Sondra. Harvey is so massive yet almost stationary so our poor fellow Texans to the south are being pummeled. Go HOME, Harvey! ~TxH~

      It’s just such a massive storm, Cynthia. And the main danger is the record-crashing rains they’re receiving. Prayers for our fellow Texans. ~TxH~
