Houston NBC-TV was finally able to get their helicopter up, and over the area.
We continue to learn of deaths when people drive into flood water. One young man was helping his sister evacuate and was electrocuted by electricity in ankle-deep water. ~~ I continue glued to local TV coverage. I haven’t left my home; I’m still in my nightgown; I haven’t combed my hair. I’m “emotionally invested” in this tragedy. I wish I could volunteer but (truth be told) volunteers are being turned away. (And I live too far from the civic center and the two large shelters.) ~~ I’m so sad but praying for rescued, and rescuers; for reporters and camera-men (in the raw weather) and those, at the “anchor” desk, sharing details with viewers.
