Reuters.com presented the following Wednesday evening on the ongoing disaster:
"Floods damaged about 4,000 structures and snarled transport in Houston, the fourth most-populous U.S. city, where more than a thousands vehicles were trapped in rising water...The storms [also] dealt a blow to air travel in the region with nearly 240 flights canceled as of 5:30 p.m. (2230 GMT) at airports in Dallas and Houston, which are among the nation's busiest.
The National Weather Service issued flash flood watches for parts of North Texas and large sections of Oklahoma. Near Dallas, police evacuated people living near a dam that had threatened to burst due to surging floodwaters. Water topped the dam and police ordered people living downstream to evacuate and move livestock to higher ground.
About 11 inches (28 cm) of rain fell in Houston on Monday, while parts of Austin were hit by as much as 7 inches (18 cm)."
All of the state of Texas is obviously in need of hopes, prayers, and assistance in this time of tragedy. Please keep endangered and surviving families in your hearts. We hope everyone is able to recover quickly once the disaster ends.
