Harvey has now made a cat 3 & it's gonna get WORSE & they're talking it's gonna hang around for a few days It may take weeks maybe even MOS to get help to you. They're also talking 3 ft of rain in a matter of hrs there if you know anyone you interact with or have family I'd be trying to make sure they know what's going on the best you can cause ALL phones & communication will be cut off like I said this is a MAJOR hurricane for Tex. Here is a live weather channel alert to keep track on it
Welcome to The Weather Geeks! We LIVE stream The Weather Channel, and radar on another LIVE stream! How cool is that? Headlines: Hurricane Harvey is expected...

@sugartoes He said that because he lost two of his family in the last one and it really brought it home how bad things can get for some people. I could see the sadness in his face as he said it. I was hearing the english above the spanish translation and it was really moving.

I have been trying to call my brother and I am getting no response. I went on FB and sent a message my niece. Had to take a break. My niece got back with me and Tom and Lynda are ok. I guess it is just raining there but who knows when it will change.

@sugartoes I just got off the phone with my S-I-L. She said they are all safe but ready to go if things get worse. She said they are at a stage 4 right now. Their main concern will be the after effects and the flooding. At least I know they are ok.

@velvet53 thank god for that the flooding is going to be the worst part & how long it hangs around the area they're talking a few days before it leaves so as long as it's on the coast it's gonna pull the water up & the winds so by MAYBE Wednesday it will be gone.

@alberello75 it depends on how strong it could be when it gets here as we're flooded with trees around us here & no way to cut them down.

@sugartoes I would not have any fear. Perhaps it is just enough to close safe in your house. Tighten doors and windows and maybe turn off the light!

@ElicBxn if you know ANYTHING about hurricanes they have a mind of it's own no one REALLY knows what it's going to do or where it's going to go from one min to the next so just prepare for the worse.

@sugartoes I've lived in Texas for 60+ years, I know a thing or two about hurricanes... and I've also learned that the forecasting is better than ever. I also know we had a little cold front that is more than enough to stop it in its tracks, and that's why it isn't going to make it here. I am, however, appreciating the cool that the storm has brought with it, clouds and rain are keeping the temp below 80ยบ.

@ElicBxn I was born in Huston but didn't live there most my life was in Calif & Fla & now what's left of it in Indiana cause there IS NO more moving, I'm done. But as far as the temps of the weather what brought it on was the warm weather & water & that's why it's hanging around like it is & doing what it's doing.

I have been keeping an eye on this even thou I live no where close or know anyone there. It is going to bad by the sounds of it. I hope that people will just leave and evacuate. It has to be horrible knowing you can lose everything, but lives are worth way more.

@Ithink yeah it's not gonna be a over night thing that's the sad part it's gonna LINGER on for at LEST 3 or more days & keep pounding. I'm like you I hope people took this serious & either got out or found a safe place to go or took cover but you know how some people can be not thinking to go out & check the damages & just be stupid.

@Lucky15 in some ways yes but in others no the yes is those that don't take this kind of thing serious to get out, but rather stick around to say they were in it. The no part is those that can't get out for what ever reason & they end up being killed in one way or another, so sad.

@sumofalltears I'm safe for now & we might be lucky if it keeps going north WEST & not north EAST but IF it does what they say it MIGHT do like go back OUT & come back that might just change things up for us. But if you know where Indiana is we're safe for now.
